I am the Impact Coordinator (and impact champion) for the School of GeoSciences. My role is to help identify and support development of impact case studies, alongside supporting staff help deliver relevant knowledge exchange to promote their research. I am based in the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation (ECCI) and work closely with staff here, and the School Business Development Executive to identify potential impact stories, and support relevant funding applications.

I am also on secondment at the Institute for Academic Development (IAD), where my work is focused on curriculum development, in particular work with Assistant Principal Lesley McAra to promote community engagement in the curriculum as part of credit bearing courses, and opportunities for research and teaching associated with interdisciplinary approaches.
