I joined the Centre for Health Effects of Radiological and Chemical Agents (CHRC) in September 2017, but I have been working for Brunel University London since September 1999, when I joined the Department of Information Systems and Computing (DISC) as an administrator for undergraduate final year projects. Whilst in DISC I studied part time with the Open University and was awarded BSc Hons in Computer Science in 2010. During my time at Brunel I have gained extensive knowledge and experience within the Higher Education sector and have progressed from DISC Research Manager to Senior Administrator for Brunel’s Research Institutes Central Support. During my role as Senior Administrator I have taken on several secondments which have allowed me to gain knowledge in a wide range of research areas and activities. My most recent secondments were Project Manager for the EU funded EQUIPT project and Theme Manager for the Health Economics Research Group (HERG).
