I am the Research Development Manager for the faculty of Arts and Humanities; I work with colleagues to support research grant application planning, review and submission. This can be identifying funding sources, facilitating research conversations or simply having a chat.

I have been in post since the creation of the team in 2016; prior to this I was the Research Grants and Contracts Officer for the faculty and for departments in both the Science and Social Sciences faculties. This varied experience has given me a real insight into the challenges and rewards of working across interdisciplinary boundaries.
