at the Disability & Eye Health Group
I am Project Coordinator in the International Centre for Eye Health within the Disability & Eye Health Group. I support three projects:
- Commonwealth Eye Health Consortium, funded by The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust
- Stronger-SAFE: Eliminating Trachoma, funded by the Wellcome Trust
- Severe Corneal Infections: Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment: Senior Research Fellowship in Clinical Science, funded by Wellcome Trust
I manage the budgets, coordination, communication, and reporting for these programmes. I manage the ITD Project Administrators' Forum and am part of the Disability & Eye Health Group team. I line-manage one person and I am PA to Professor Matthew Burton.
I hold a Diplôme d’Etudes en Langue Française from the Université d'Angers, France, and a HND in Business Enterprise from the Waterford Institute of Technology, Ireland. From 2008 to 2011 I worked with Sightrisk Ltd., a start-up company based in Waterford, Ireland, which provides online risk assessment tools for age-related macular degeneration (AMD). From 2011 to 2014 I worked as Research Assistant at the Macular Pigment Research Group, Waterford Institute of Technology. I started working with LSHTM in September 2014.
