My current role is Research Community Lead at the UCL Centre for Advanced Research Computing. In my former role as Senior Research IT Services Facilitator, I was responsible for providing advisory, outreach and engagement services relating to Research IT services at UCL, promoting and enabling the use of services such as the High Performance Computing services, the UCL Research Data service, the Research Software Development service, and the Institutional Research Information Service (IRIS). Also responsible for coordinating user training programmes related to Research IT services.

I started my career at Manchester Computing Centre (based at the University of Manchester), working in support and liaison for the National Computing Service (high performance and data/scalar computing) where I was responsible for providing advice and training to users in London and the south of the UK. I later became coordinator for the Mimas CrossFire chemical information service, a high profile and complex research database.
