Background and Qualifications

Before joining Newcastle University I worked to develop strategic international partnerships at Durham University.  This included facilitating research and education activities within those partnerships and across international networks.  Outside of the Education sector, I have developed and delivered cross-sector projects relating to fuel poverty and worked in policy positions in a housing association and the North East Assembly.
