I've been at the Academy of Medical Sciences since May 2017, and manage a team with responsibility for the delivery of a portfolio of funding opportunities aimed at our community of international researchers, namely: the Newton International Fellowship, Newton Advanced Felllowship, Daniel Turnberg Travel Fellowship and AMS Professorship grant schemes.  My role requires me to work closely with UK Government, the UK Academies, and a variety of overseas stakeholders.  I have experience in the design, implementation and management of complex grant schemes, and in overseeing the compliance of funds being purposed under the terms of UK Overseas Development Assistance (ODA).

I previously worked at the Wellcome Trust, where I had oversight of the organisation's portfolio of grant schemes for clinical academics, and have degrees from the University of London: a BSc in Biology with Environmental Studies and a MSc in Environmental Science.

In my spare time, I volunteer at the London Wetland Centre, and enjoy running, walking and birdwatching.  For my sins, I am also a season ticket holder at Barnet Football Club!
