  • Please note that I work in RDM Monday to Wednesday (am), and the MPLS divisional office Wednesday (pm) to Friday.

As part of the RDM Research Strategy and Funding team, I work closely with the Research Strategy Coordinator, Ruth McCaffrey, and Research Facilitator, Serena Briant, to support research and funding activities in RDM.

In particular, I am responsible for:

  • supporting early career researchers in identifying new funding opportunities 
  • maintaining the RDM Funding Database and writing the termly RDM Funding Bulletin

Before joining RDM in May 2018, I trained as a scientist with a particular interest in developmental neurobiology. I completed my bachelor's degree in Biomedical Sciences at King's College London in 2013, then moved to the Francis Crick Institute for my PhD.
