Job title

University Research Training Co-ordinator


Susan completed her PhD, in pathology, at University College London Medical School in 1990. She continued with post-doctoral cancer research at the same institution until 1995 when she joined Oxford Brookes University as a Senior Lecturer. She continues in her academic role, teaches undergraduates and heads a small research team. Since 2006 she has had a split role, spending half of her time as the University's Research Training Coordinator, where she develops, oversees and delivers skills training programmes for research students and research-active staff at all levels across the University. She was promoted to Professor in 2016, partly based on her researcher development work.
