Professional Role

As Research Promotion Coordinator for Lancaster Environment Centre I have the privilege of providing communications, events and administrative support to the researchers of this large interdisciplinary department. This includes arranging conferences, seminar series and public/stakeholder engagement activites; working as an interface with the press office; increasing departmental impact and profile including managing website and social media content; researching new opportunities; and celebrating successes.

My own research background is in terrestrial ecology, with a growing interest in knowledge exchange.
