Training and Career Development Lead

I am responsible for supporting PSI staff, particular research staff, with training and career development, helping to achieve one of PSI's goals of developing the next generation of pandemic sciences researchers globally. I coordinate support for PSI staff across the different departments to which they belong, sharing learning and resources and identifying gaps and opportunities. In my role, I work with colleagues at the PSI and more widely across departments, divisions and centrally. I am based in the PSI offices in the Old Road Campus Research Building.  

I have a DPhil in cell biology from the University of Oxford and a Diploma in Science Communication from Birkbeck College. I did postdoctoral research at Oxford and at the MRC Clinical Sciences in London. Leaving research to join the Wellcome Trust in London, I worked for 15 years on a wide range of programmes. I then worked as a freelance science consultant helping researchers write grant applications and disseminate their research findings. I moved to the University of Oxford in January 2018 to work as the Research Facilitator for a new initiative called Oxford Metabolic Health and have been in my current post since October 2022.
