I am the Impact and Partnership Development Manager for Policy and Education Innovation in the University of Exeter’s Innovation, Impact and Business team (maternity cover until March 2023). I support researchers in the Graduate School of Education to connect with a variety of external partners and to create positive impact in the education system. I am also the IIB lead for Policy@Exeter, which aims to support academics to effectively engage with policy, as well as promoting Exeter's world-class research externally to policy makers locally and nationally.
I joined the University in March 2020 as an Impact and Partnership Development Officer. As IPDO I supported the development of 23 REF Impact Case Studies across 8 Units of Assessment, contributed to the creation of the Centre for Future Clean Mobility, and of Policy@Exeter.
Following a BA in Modern Languages and an MA in Translation Studies, I worked as a client-facing project manager in the Language Services department of a global Clinical Research Organisation. I can speak/sign in five languages (at various degrees of rustiness) and enjoy reading contemporary fiction, knitting, training my cat, and taking long walks along the South West coast.
