Ruth is currently Head of Enterprise and Business Partnerships in LEC leading a team of staff towards creating impact from research in partnership with business and other science and technology users. She has taken a lead role in coordinating activities within and between the science and user community, identifying new collaborative research opportunities and optimising professional development learning across a range of key science user groups.

Ruth works as part of a wider multidisciplinary team across Science and Technology at Lancaster and is able to bridge LEC expertise with research capability in Chemistry, Engineering, Physics, Computing, Mathematics, Statistics, Security and Health.

Ruth trained as an environmental chemist (PhD Lancaster 1994) and developed a distinctive international profile of research targeted on the human health implications of chemical exposure. From 2003 she was based in the Lancaster Management School working alongside social scientists and focused on the interdisciplinary management and regulation of a range of contemporary risk issues. These included projects focused on risk migration and transformation, characterising the disparity between risk measurement and risk management, the broader impacts of new technologies such as nanotechnology and the regulatory implications of synergy associated with mixtures of hazards.
