Job title

Knowledge Exchange, Placement and Training Officer, Research Excellence Training Team


I have a strong background in scientific academic research and collaboration with industry. I design and deliver training which aligns with the government's Industrial Strategy and University of York objectives 'to build the pipeline of high-skilled research talent'. One of my primary roles is to liaise, and build strong links with public, private and third sector organisations to forge new opportunities for collaborative research and training. I work closely with postgraduate students and research staff to enhance their professional development, leadership and mentoring capabilities and I am passionate about supporting our researchers to achieve their employment and development goals and aspirations. These activities in and of themselves promote knowledge exchange between Higher Education based researchers and public, private and third sector organisations to achieve these aims.
