I work for the Department of Physics to enable the outputs of our research programmes to realise societal impact through business collaboration and commercialisation.
My role supports all members of the Department from students to senior academics, to engage in activities that utilise their knowledge, skills and technology to solve new challenges. I overseeentrepreneurship training and also help businesses access the broad range of capabilities in Oxford Physics and support the development of collaborations.
To fulfil this role I work with colleagues in Oxford University Innovation, The Foundry, MPLS Industrial Research Partnerships team and the university Knowledge Exchange and Impact Team.
I joined the Department on an STFC Innovation Fellowship (IPS) and have been appointed as an Innovation Champion by Oxford University Innovation. Before joining Oxford Physics, I managed national programmes of innovation at the UK Research Councils in both physical and life sciences, following my DPhil/Post-Doc in Biochemistry/Oncology at Oxford. I’m also a member of Wolfson College.
