I am a Research Project Manager in the Verrill Pathology Group, Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences. I have worked in the department since 2005 and have significant experience in managing large consortium projects, including in transplantation immunology with roles such as Work Package Manager and Steering Committee member.  I have a Post-Graduate Certificate in Management (Merit) from Oxford Brookes University School of Business. 

I am the Programme Manager and PPIE (Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement) Lead on the ARTICULATE PRO Study, investigating the deployment of AI in the prostate cancer pathway by using Paige Prostate to assist pathologists reading prostate biopsies. As such, I  have strategic oversight of the study and manage staffing and finance amongst other things.  I am also the Line Manager for the study admin assistant.  The project has a strong patient and public involvement and engagement strategy and is committed to actively listening to patients and public, leading the way in improving public trust in AI, and in effective AI governance for patient benefit.

I also enjoy my role as a Departmental Mentor and, during a secondment to the Medical Sciences Divisional Office, I helped to write research impact cases for the latest Research Excellence Framework exercise.
