Jennifer Wood

CDT Manager (Cloud and Big Data)

Background

As the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Cloud Computing for Big Data Manager, I support the Directors in delivering the strategy of the Centre, both within its long-term vision and daily.

I am responsible for the overall management of the CDT and its administration, having oversight of all aspects of its operations. I maintain the CDT research space and take an active role in supporting the students throughout their training and PhD, from recruitment to graduation. 

A core element of my role is engagement with both internal and external stakeholders, including industry partners and the funding body (EPSRC). This includes coordinating and administering key network events, workshops, and forums, and external relations and outreach activities.
