Professional summary

Research Interests

I am a project manager with over 10 years’ experience delivering large, complex, multi-organisation projects in a scientific research environment. I plan, co-ordinate and monitor project activities resources and risk to successfully meet project deliverables and facilitate the delivery of science into policy. I currently manage the Welsh Government (WG) funded Environment and Rural Affairs Monitoring and Modelling Programme (ERAMMP). The aim of the £3.6M programme is to design, implement and deliver monitoring and modelling which collects data across key environmental parameters and undertakes analysis informing on the health and resilience of Wales' land-based natural resources.  The programme will also undertake modelling analysis to inform on environmental and socio-economic impact of the EU exit process and the design and evaluation of programmes delivering to the Natural Resource Policy. 

Previous to ERAMMP I  managed the Welsh Government (WG) funded Glastir Monitoring and Evaluation Programme (GMEP), which aims to assess the impact of WG’s agricultural-environment scheme, ‘Glastir’ (which pays approximately £80M to farmers annually to deliver environmental benefits). GMEP combines an annual data and sample gathering survey across Wales with scientific models that forecast change in the environment, socio-economic studies and the development of innovative monitoring techniques.

I am an ISO9001 (Quality Management System) internal auditor.  I conduct audit reviews to evaluate and provide independent assurance to directorate that the organisation is being managed effectively.
