My Role

My role as Project Co-ordinator for the 'Gender Diversification in the Early Years' (GenderEYE) project is to take responsibility for the day to day running of the project and ensure that the project investigators and research associates are supported in their activities. 

Profile

What leads me into this current role at Lancaster is a background in environmental education with the Lancashire Wildlife Trust and Merseyside BioBank. I am captivated by the subject area of the GenderEYE project and the challenges that encircle it. I am therefore thrilled to put my wide ranging administrative skills to use at Lancaster University to help facilitate this valuable and ground-breaking research collaboration with the Fatherhood Institute and Queen Maud's University College.

In the other two thirds of my working week, I am completing my PhD at University College London, researching the value of farmland pond restoration for biodiversity conservation. I act as Secretary for the Norfolk Ponds Project and the European Pond Conservation Network as well as running the Lancashire branch of the 'Great Twin Pond Dig' outreach project funded by the British Ecological Society.
