As the Head of Administration and Finance, reporting to Professor Krina Zondervan, I am responsible for ensuring the smooth running of the Department.  My team provide a comprehensive administrative and financial service to the Department, from booking travel and conferences, to managing communication channels, processing office moves, producing and monitoring cost effective budgets, to simply recruiting the very best people to the Department.

I have an MSc in Human Resource Management and a BA (Hons) in Business Administration; I am a chartered member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development.
