I currently work as the Research Impact Officer for the Faculty of Science and Health at the University of Essex. I provide support with making a demonstrable contribution to the world outside academia from research. This involves working with academics, colleagues in the Research and Enterprise Officer and staff across the Faculty of Science and Health. Before commencing this role in 2016 I worked in various education related roles at the University of Essex where I also undertook my undergraduate and post graduate studies.
