I liaise and work with a number of colleagues and teams to support the delivery of the University’s strategy for research impact, including: the University Research Office, and the Research Funding Development Managers in particular; the HaSS Faculty Enterprise Team; Research Impact Officers from other Faculties; and research support networks within academic units.

Previous Faculty Roles 

In my previous role as Research Associate with responsibility of research impact, I was involved in preparing impact case studies for the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014. Post REF, I worked with researchers from across the Faculty to develop impact, public engagement and knowledge exchange strategies, and to build pathways to impact and evaluation measures into research proposals and existing projects.
