With a first-class academic background, and significant senior management experience in large and complex organisations, my work has an emphasis on working empathetically with academic and professional services staff, and with students, to deliver high-quality provision.

I have a strong personal commitment to the individual and societal benefits of widening access to higher education to those from all backgrounds.

I possess solid analytical and engaging leadership and interpersonal skills.  I am a strong collaborator and, whilst being innovative and assertive, am also sensitive and diplomatic.
