My background is in work psychology, and I am a Chartered Psychologist of the British Psychological Society. My main area of interest is in how organisations can best support their employees’ learning and development, although I am also interested in topics related to psychometrics, diversity and inclusion, and vocational selection.
Within the University, I lead on the Oxford Colleges’ Leadership Academy, an initiative by Domestic Bursars to explore and facilitate shared learning and career development opportunities for non-academic staff across the University’s 44 colleges and halls.
I am an Oxford alumnus, graduating in 2010 with a degree in Experimental Psychology from New College, Oxford. I later completed a Masters in Occupational Psychology and a Doctorate at the Institute of Work Psychology, Sheffield University Management School.
My role in College
As Director of Operations, I am responsible for the management of the College’s non-academic services and resources. Our teams look after matters relating to accommodation and housekeeping, catering, conferences, maintenance and estates, ICT, security, and health and safety.
I am part of the College’s welfare team, and can support students and colleagues in moments of need, and when navigating and accessing relevant support services. I am one of our two harassment support officers, and am also trained in physical First Aid and Mental Health First Aid.
My office is at the back of the General Office, and I am happy to meet students and staff, normally without appointment.
I am a Fellow of the College and a member of Governing Body. I sit on a number of College committees (see below), and am happy to take forward others’ points of view where I can.
