I am responsible for managing all aspects of CATCH.  This includes developing, maintaining and implementing the Centre’s current business plan, maintaining and strengthening stakeholder relationships (both internal and external), coordinating the search for research staff and identifying new partnership opportunities which strengthen the scale, reach and sustainability of the Centre’s activities.

Before joining CATCH I worked for the University of Sheffield for 10 years in a variety of centre management and industry facing roles. Prior to this I spent 12 years in industrial R&D at BP and Castrol.
