I joined EPCC in December 2013 as the Project Officer for the FORTISSIMO and CRESTA EC FP7 funded projects. My role has since expanded to Research Projects Coordinator for all EPCC externally funded projects.
My main duties are to provide comprehensive project management support to Principal Investigators including planning and monitoring, financial management, reporting and co-ordination of academic and industrial partners, managing project risks along with identifying and implementing mitigating actions and solutions.
I also coordinate the production of cost statements in conjunction with the Research Grants Section of the Finance Department and, where we are the Project Coordinator, manage the collection and submission of cost statements from external project partners. Other duties include the coordination,preparation, distribution and monitoring of deliverables along with implementing the quality assurance process for deliverables to meet project and legislative requirements.
Outside of work I’m a keen mountain biker and hill walker.
