Tuula Itkonen

BA (Hons)


Executive Assistant to Professor Hugh Watkins (Head of Department)

I joined Oxford University in 2014 and currently provide administrative, PA and project support to the RDM Head of Department and his strategic office. This includes liaison with staff across the Department, the University, and various external institutions. I also support activities for the Oxford BHF Centre of Research Excellence.

My role involves diary and travel organisation, correspondence, coordination of academic, clinical and administrative responsibilities for Professor Watkins, office management and committee work – I am the also the central point of contact for any queries. Furthermore, I assist with the planning and facilitation of RDM and Oxford BHF CRE annual symposia, and of smaller PI / group meetings.
