I promote knowledge exchange and service provision from the world-class research, services and expertise of UEA to external organisations of all kinds in the digital, creative and heritage sectors. I am responsible for reinforcing existing relationships and establishing new relationships outside the higher education sector to:
- increase the levels of knowledge exchange out of UEA
- generate increasing impact from our work, and
- encourage licensing, consultancy, graduate careers and funded research opportunities.
Following my BSc in Environmental Sciences and MSc in Environmental Management I worked in commercial consultancy with Mott MacDonald and then across the East of England's renewable energy sector as part of the region's renewable energy agency.
I returned to UEA in 2006 and since then have held various roles in knowledge transfer, investment fund management, consultancy and project management before taking up the position of Relationship Manager in 2014.
