I am a Knowledge Exchange Manager at the University of Bristol, and have been based here since October 2018. My key role is to advise social science academics on the development of knowledge exchange strategies and assist them in seeking funding for, and implementing these strategies. I also support the University in creating a culture that encourages partnerships, knowledge exchange and impact through training and capacity building with academics at all stages of their careers. Prior to joining the University of Bristol I worked at the Economic and Social Research Council, the UK’s largest funder of social science research, where I was responsible for developing large calls for funding in a range of areas including Global Challenges, Energy, Digital Economy and Productivity. I have a BsC in Psychology from the University of Nottingham.
