Field Support Technician, Research Project Administrator
I am currently working on two part-time roles based within LEC.
For 50% of my time I work as Research Project Administrator for the Lancaster RCUK SUPI project (http://www.publicengagement.ac.uk/work-with-us/current-projects/school-university-partnership-initiative/lancaster-university) where I organise and coordinate events and activities between Lancaster University researchers and the South Lakes Federation of schools.
For the rest of my time I work as Field Support Technician for the ForestPrime Project (https://forestprime.wordpress.com/) where I carry out monthly soil respiration measurements of our experimental sites at Wytham Woods, Oxfordshire as well carrying out as regular soil nutrient and microbial analysis.
I come from a research background and in 2013 I completed my PhD studying relationships between plant traits and soil microbial communities in haymeadows based in the Plant-Soil Ecology Laboratory in LEC. This project was part of the pan-European project VITAL (http://www.project-vital.net/) working with 7 partners across Europe.
