Current role is Project Manager for the CSconnected Strength in Places Fund project, led by Cardiff University.

I've worked at Cardiff University for 16 years in various research support roles. Prior to supporting the CSconnected project, I worked on major project and funding bid development, European Structural Funds and FP7 funding. I've also worked in the School of Engineering Research Office supporting research management and PGR activities, and as a Research Development Officer for Arts and Humanities.   

Before joining Cardiff University, I trained as an accountant with PriceWaterhouseCoopers supporting public sector audit and assurance in Wales, working with mainly local authority, health board and education clients.
