I joined the UCL Interaction Centre as Manager in December 2009 and ensure the effective organisation and smooth running of the centre. I am responsible for maintaining UCLIC's financial records, managing the UCLIC budget and advising staff on financial issues and procedures. As manager, I also undertake a HR role and manage the recruitment of new staff and maintain staff files and development records, as well as being responsible for health and safety issues. I am also the postgraduate administrator for our PhD students. Part of my job entails planning and organising various research and publicity events and preparing publicity material, such as the UCLIC Newsletters. I also act as PA to the Director of UCLIC, Prof. Yvonne Rogers, and provide regular administrative support to all members of staff in our group.
