Profile

After completing my BA in Natural Sciences and followed by a Masters in Environmental Management, I worked as a researcher and project manager in Staffordshire University and University of Manchester. During these years, I worked on projects in a number of different thematic areas ranging from investigating small business compliance with environmental regulations through to public preference towards different landscape management practices in Wales.

After completing my part-time PhD in 2016, I joined the University of Sheffield where I worked as a research associate in international research development in the Department of Landscape. I started my current role as Research Hub Manager (job-shared) on May 1st 2019 where I provide research support for academics in the Information School as well as those in the School of Education and the Department of Journalism Studies.
