I joined the University in 2012, working initially in the Institute of Health & Society on various teams including the Research Design Service, the EU Framework 7 funded RESCAP-MED project (research capacity-building with academics in the Eastern Mediterranean) and latterly the SEED project, which is aiming to improve end of life care for people with dementia.  In August 2017 I moved to the HASS faculty to provide programme support for Philosophical Studies.
