I am a member of the Association of University Administrators and the UCL Teaching Administrator Conference committee. 

I am part time, usually working Monday - Thursday.

Brief biography

I hold a BA in English and Related Literature from the University of York and an MA in Text and Performance Studies from King's College London/RADA. After working as administrator in the NHS and the arts I joined UCL as a Programme Administrator in 2007. I have worked in a number of departments including the Centre for Health Informatics and Multiprofessional Education, Science and Technology Studies and most recently Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering.  When I'm not at work I am mostly at the piano studying composition or playing jazz.
