I moved to the University of Aberdeen in August 2014, having spent all of my career to date in education.

I am based in the University's award-winning Health Services Research Unit as Unit Business Manager. In this role, I have responsibility for ensuring the smooth running of all of the Unit's business processes, including staff contracts, financial management, grants costings and applications (with the exception of clinical trials), grant extensions, final reconciliations and assisting the Unit Director with the development and implementation of the Unit strategy.

Before moving to the Health Services Research Unit, I was the University's Head of Strategic Planning. In this role, I had overall responsibility for development, negotiation and agreement of the University's Outcome Agreement with the Scottish Funding Council (SFC) and for development of delivery mechanisms against the University's Strategic Plan. I was also the institutional contact for the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) and lead contact with a range of external bodies including the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) and the SFC.

Prior to moving to Aberdeen, I held a broad range of roles with universities in London and the North East of England (King's College London, the School of Advanced Study and the universities of Northumbria and Newcastle) as well as spending time in the Further Education sector working for a national FE awarding body, firstly as a qualification developer and then as Publications Executive.

My personal academic background (now fairly dormant!) is in late 17th and early 18th century (Early Modern) English literature, with a side interest in early 20th century modernism and additional interests in music and performing arts.

In my spare time I run a small jewellery and music business, making custom and bespoke pieces of jewellery, running jewellery-making workshops and arranging and teaching music.
