What do you do?
I am responsible for shaping Bristol’s research and enterprise activity, ensuring it meets the university’s strategic ambition to be a world-leading research-intensive university making a positive contribution to the key global challenges facing society.
I am also in charge of engaging with a wide range of organisations – from funders to corporates and charities – regionally, nationally and internationally, and enhancing an already high-performing research environment at Bristol.
What have you been most proud of since joining Bristol?
In the past six months I’ve been able to fully immerse myself in Bristol’s vibrant research environment and witnessed the university’s hugely impressive and inspiring research response to COVID-19. My respect and appreciation for the dedication, skill, and agility with which staff and students contribute to Bristol’s scholarly, educational and civic endeavour has only grown.
