I am a School Research Support Officer supporting Geography, Politics and Sociology in all research related activities pre- and post-award.


I have joined Newcastle from the University of Sunderland where I was previously a Research Support Officer at the central Research Support Office. Prior to this I was the Faculty Engagement Co-ordinator at Lancaster University for the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. In this role at Lancaster I was PA to the Associate Dean for Internationalisation and Engagement, and supported the production of the Faculty’s HEIF bid. I studied at Lancaster University for both my undergraduate and postgraduate studies, graduating in 2018 with a PhD in Politics.
