Engagement Manager, WISERD
I'm responsible for developing and co-ordinating the Wales Institute for Social and Economic Research, Data & Method's engagement with a wide range of stakeholders from across the public, policy and third sectors. I support academic researchers across WISERD to maximise their engagement with external partners and I oversee WISERD’s communications and events.
I previously worked in Cardiff University's Creative Economy team building links between the university and those working in the city's creative economy. I was responsible for developing and establishing the brand, website and communications for the Creative Cardiff network.
Before joining Cardiff University I worked in communications roles for organisations including English Heritage, the British Association of Settlements and Social Action Centres, the Green Party, and for a member of the European Parliament. I'm a qualified Broadcast Journalist and have worked on news, factual and arts programmes at the BBC and for independent production companies.
