Head of Research, Impact & Engagement
I lead and manage the Divisional Research and Impact team, defining the team’s support according to departments’ needs and the external funding context to enable the delivery of the Division’s research strategy and objectives. I gather intelligence on the external funding environment, and look after the Division’s relationship with external funders in order to advise on divisional and departmental research strategies. I am the contact point for all research policy queries and feed into all research-related University and Divisional committees. I am in the process of setting up two new teams, which will support researchers’ wider engagement - Business Engagement and Partnerships working across the Humanities and Social Sciences Division and a University-wide Policy team.
