I completed a BSc in Chemistry with French at U.M.I.S.T., Manchester and EHICS (Grand Ecole de Chemie, Strasbourg) in 1992.
I then went on to work in the coatings industry, initially in research and development, and later in regulatory affairs. After a career break, I retrained as a science teacher, gaining my PGCE in 2010.
I joined the University of Leeds (Faculty of Medicine and Health), supporting the MBChB programme, in 2015, before moving to a role in the Graduate School Office in the Faculty of Engineering.
In 2018 I started an integrated MSc/PhD, at the University of Leeds, as part of the cP3 CDT programme in the School of Chemical and Process Engineering, gaining my MSc in 2020.
I was the Fluid Dynamics Centre for Doctoral Training Manager in the School of Computing, before taking up the role as Manager for the Earth Observation CDT (SENSE) in February 2023.
