I am the CommNet2 Research Administrator. My role is to support the CommNet2 project and help to deliver its aims of growing a vibrant community network for those working in ICT in Academia and Industry. I am responsible for the organisation of CommNet2 project activities and events, marketing and communications, supporting member engagement, and being the main administrative point of contact for all stakeholders.
I have worked in HE Administration for 9 years and have more recently specialised in managing programmes with a networking element. Prior to working on the CommNet2 project, I managed the training provision for the MRC and Arthrits Research UK Centre for Musculoskeletal Ageing (CIMA) and supported the Centre’s aims in building capacity by training researchers who are multi-disciplinary and cross-institutional in their outlook. I am delighted to now be part of the CommNet2 project, working to build an engaged and connected community of those researching and working in ICT that transcends institution and discipline. Outside of work, I am also studying part-time for my PhD in the University’s of Sheffield’s Psychology Department researching the co-development of gaze behaviour and language.
Within CommNet2, my special interests lie in project management, event organisation, community networking and engagement strategy, web design, branding and marketing.
