planning, evaluating and evidencing research impact
equality, diversity, and inclusion in research.
I am currently the managing editor for the Journal of Research Management and Administration, a member of ARMA's Professional Development Committee and Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Advisory Board, external examiner for the University of Strathyclyde's PGCerts in Researcher Development and Knowledge Exchange, External Committee Member for Goldsmiths Research Integrity and Ethics Committee, member of Vitae's CROS and PIRLS Working Group, External Adviser on Middle Career Development for the Society for Research into Higher Education, and peer reviewer for the International Journal of Doctoral Studies.
