As WISERD Research Programme Manager I’m responsible for providing strategic oversight, coordination and delivery of WISERD research programmes, I head up the WISERD Hub Professional Services team, based at Cardiff University, and am a member of the WISERD Executive Group. I have worked at Cardiff University for over 10 years in various Research Support and Project Management roles. My experience includes project management of the Masters in Educational Practice (MEP) funded by Welsh Government; administrative coordination of the Network of Experts on Social Aspects of Education and Training (NESET) funded by the European Commission; and roles supporting research and capacity building activities at WISERD funded by the ESRC and HEFCW.
Prior to Cardiff University, I worked at the Financial Services Authority (FSA – now the FCA) where I was involved in the development of the FSA's regulatory policy and advised regulated financial firms and FSA staff on FSA Training and Competence rules. I hold a BA (Hons) in Geography from Exeter University, an NVQ in Business Administration and am member of the Association of University Administrators (AUA) and of the Association of Research Managers and Administrators (ARMA)
