I joined the University of Leeds in 2008 as a research manager in the Leeds Institute of Health Sciences. I became Institute Manager in 2012 and moved to the Faculty Office in 2018 to support the preparations for the Medicine & Health returns to the Research Excellence Framework (REF). 

I work closely with the FMH Research Quality & Impact team to co-ordinate the Faculty's REF submissions and ongoing support for strategic research applications and impact.

RQI team:

Research Quality & Impact lead - Professor Mark Mon Williams

Research Quality Manager - Dr Claire Keevil

Research Impact Manager - Mr Ali Quaile

RQI Support Officer, Mrs Flick Gillett

For University staff there is a dedicated Sharepoint site with the latest information on our support for research quality and impact.

I also undertake reviews on behalf of the Executive Dean and investigations on behalf of the University. I am leading on the implementation of a workload model system across the faculty. I sit on the Research Quality & Impact Group.

I am currently providing part-time business management support two days a week for the Leeds Institute of Cardiovascular and Metabolic Medicine.
