I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations, and a CIPR Accredited PR Practitioner.
Communications and Public Engagement Manager
CIPR accredited practitioner
I am responsible for developing the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences communications and public engagement activities in order to strengthen information-sharing, both internally and externally. I help to raise awareness of the Department’s strategic aims and its achievements.
I am Editor-in-Chief of the Department's websites and I have an overview of the intranet. It is my job to produce publicity materials, manage social media, co-ordinate our public engagement activities and liaise with the University Press Office to flag up our research to the media.
With a background in academic publishing, I have over ten years' experience in communications roles at the University of Oxford.
