Since working at Aston University, I have led various programmes; I developed a new masters programme, led the School submission to HEFCE Research Excellence Framework (REF), and was Associate Dean for Research and Associate Dean for Enterprise until September 2015.
Before joining Aston University, my career included research and management of applied research in a large national laboratory, then defence company. I managed projects and led departments through significant change programmes. My work was in collaboration with a wide range of international government organisations and companies, as well as academic and professional institutions.
I am still working hard to encourage more girls and women to pursue careers in the physical sciences and engineering.
