Background and Qualifications

Before joining the SAgE Faculty, I supported academics at Newcastle University to win international research funding. Prior to that I worked to develop strategic international partnerships at Durham University.  This included facilitating research and education activities within those partnerships and 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.
