I am the Coordinator for the St Andrews Network for Climate, Energy, Environment and Sustainability (STACEES), a new interdisciplinary initiative at St Andrews designed to drive impact and visibility in our environmental research. My role has a strong focus on leading the network’s communication strategy, and includes coordinating network events, engagement activities, outputs, identifying areas for potential interdisciplinary collaboration and supporting the writing of funding bids.

Between 2015 and 2019 I was the Network Facilitator for the Leverhulme International Network for Contemporary Studies, a role in which I contributed to and participated in all aspects of planning the Network's events, which took place in Montreal, Paris, Delhi, Glasgow and St Andrews. I was also the Administrative Officer for Research and Impact in the School of Modern Languages, where I provided support for all research activities in the school, including REF and Impact, ethics, grants, conferences and events.
