I contribute to project coordination and general administration to support the delivery of our Education Strategy.

I am responsible for maintaining relationships with relevant UCL departments, institutes and centres, UCL and sector research, monitoring project timelines and budgets, developing reporting and evaluation mechanisms, and maintaining sets of data and other records which support projects.

I joined UCL in 2018 and have worked in the Institute for Global Health and Institute of Education. Previously I worked at the University of Denver and Endicott College in the United States and Trinity College Dublin in Ireland.
