I work with funders, PIs and academic collaborators to organise and oversee project delivery; ensuring compliance with deadlines and milestones. This involves recruitment and resourcing, budget management, arranging and finalising contracts, contributing to and editing academic publications, and maintaining and developing systems/records for project reporting and contract reviews.

I manage the financial side of a large portfolio of projects, monitoring substantial budgets and providing PIs with guidance, advice and solutions for any identified issues relating to under/overspends. I also deal with costing and pricing new bids and grant proposals, liaising with subcontractors and collaborators to prepare costs for submission.

I joined the University in early 2019, progressing from a Research Support Officer to Project Co-ordinator. I am currently undertaking a long-term secondment as the Centre's Research Administration Manager.
