My role is to coordinate and support strategic research initiatives that relate to the UCL Populations and Lifelong Health Domain.

Working closely with the academic leads, I develop and implement the strategy for the Domain; facilitating academic interactions across faculties and developing research collaborations and partnerships through events, networks and forums; showcasing expertise; and supporting strategic funding applications and capacity building activities.

My role is to manage the end-to-end delivery of a range of high-level symposia, conferences and workshops for two of the UCL Research Domains - Populations & Lifelong Health and Personalised Medicine. I also help to promote Domain-related news, events and funding opportunities through the UCL Research Domains website, the UCL SLMS Research Coordination website, the SLMS Twitter feed and various printed publications.

The aim of the strategic communications and events support that I provide is to generate and maintain our key target audiences' interest in, involvement with and commitment to the cross-disciplinary research and partnerships within UCL Populations and Lifelong Health.
