As Public Engagement Manager, I act as the focal point for public engagement across all Faculties and Departments from a strategic and operational perspective. In collaboration with the Public Engagement Advisory Group I work to advance a culture of embedded public engagement in research at the School.

I assist researchers in accessing public engagement funding, organise public engagement activites that staff and students can participate in, provide training in public engagement and manage internal and external communications about public engagement.

I was previously a Research Fellow at the School in the Centre for the Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases and obtained a PhD in immunology from McGill University in Canada. While at McGill, I was also a Coordinator for the McGill University branch of Let's Talk Science, a programme that creates and delivers interactive activities to excite the public about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) subjects.
