I am currently Head of the News and Media (Research) team in Imperial's Communications Division, during January-November 2024.

I am on secondment from my permanent role as Communications Manager at the Grantham Institute - Climate Change and Environment, where I organise media relations, campaigns, news and events about climate and the environment.

I joined Imperial in December 2010 as Research Media Officer for the Faculty of Natural Sciences, becoming Research Events Manager from October 2013, managing research activites at the Imperial Festival and the public events programme.

I have reported on College news and activities for the the Imperial College Podcast and one of the many voices behind the Research Communications group's Twitter alter-ego, @ImperialSpark.

Before joining Imperial, I worked in various science communications roles at Queen Mary University of London, the Science Media Centre during its time at the Royal Institution, and the Grant Museum of Zoology at UCL.

I have a BSc in Ecogical and Environmental Biology from UCL and a PG Cert in Public Relations from the Charter Institute of Public Relation (CIPR).

I'm one of the co-chairs of Imperial 600, Imperial's network of LGBTQIA staff and postgraduate students.
