My role is to deliver the University's partnership development activities in the Defence and Security sector. This involves engaging with key government and industry stakeholders to drive impact, connect partners, create opportunities and generate value. Due to the varied nature of the sector, I work with expert academics across all University departments, such as Physics, Engineering, Sports & Health Science and Computer Science, with the aim of bringing together internal teams and external partners to develop collaborative research opportunities and new innovation.

Working with key industry partners, I lead on a wide range of funding bids and defence frameworks, including DASA, R-Cloud, Progeny, HSSRC, and Serapis.


Skills and experience in building strategic partnerships, with expertise in contract research, negotiation and project management.
