I joined the University in September 2014.  I have a background in administration, having worked in both the U.S. and the U.K.

The Arts have always been an interest, and I have a great appreciation for literature, film, and music.  I obtained my BA in English in the U.S. before moving to the U.K. in 2009, where I completed my MA in Creative Writing at Newcastle University in 2010.

I have worked for the Clinical Trials Research Unit (CTRU) as a Trials Support Officer for four years, providing administrative support across a variety of medical research trials.
