Since 2013, Victoria has been responsible for the joint planning, co-ordination and excecution of the award winning International Conference of Undergraduate Research (ICUR) supported by the Monash-Warwick Alliance. As ICUR has continuously grown year on year, Victoria liaises with partner institutions, now representing 15 universities across 5 continents, to showcase the best in undergraduate research. She primarily supports students at Warwick, as well as students from participating universities, through the abstract writing and review process, various training, conference preparation, delivery and dissemination activities.
As part of ICUR, Victoria co-manages a team of international student directors with the aim of integrating and accelerating the 'ICUR Experience' for all participants, and as well manages a group of over 50 student volunteers leading up to and during the two day event. She also drives ICUR's marketing strategy and digital presence across the university and externally, with the intent of not only increasing awareness but the participation of staff and undergraduate students - in person and/or virtually - who have the opportunity to be involved in this unique and developmental student experience.
During her time with IATL, Victoria has managed student-driven research projects and written research reports commissioned by the Pro-Vice Chancellor Teaching and Learning, mainly utilising qualitative methods, relating to: Widening Participation, the National Student Survey (NSS) and the 'Student Champion' Scheme. She was also a researcher on the Erasmus+Project: BLASTER and more recently, the wider University Enterprise Benchmarking Project which seeks to compare innovation and enterprise initiatives and best practices amongst leading universities in the UK and internationally.
Currently Victoria is working with her IATL colleague, Dr Elena Riva and Sarah Ashworth (Head of Mental Health & Wellbeing Support Services) on a study which seeks to identify and promote pedagogic practices which improve students’ wellbeing and mental health awareness which can be embedded in the teaching and learning environment. This project has received support from the Warwick Innovation Fund and is currently in the data collection phase.
Along with her experience working in education and training and as a researcher and analyst in boutique consultancies in North America and the UK; Victoria has a Bachelor of Human Resource Management with Honours from the School of Human Resource Management (SHRM), York University (Toronto, Canada); a Master of Arts in International Employment Relations with Merit from Warwick Business School (WBS); and is currently pursuing a PhD in Business and Management within the Organisation and HRM Group at WBS. Her research is a multi-level study on how employees perceive and experience corporate social responsibility (or CSR) within the confines of a multinational company and its various institutional environments and logics.
Victoria is a member of the following teaching and research groups: Organisation &HRM (OHRM), Industrial Relations Research Unit (IRRU), Connecting Research on Employment and Work (CREW) and Global Research Priorities (GRP). She is active in the Widening Participation Forum and the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Network and was a representative from 2012-2017 for her relevant cohorts on the Student-Staff Liaison Committee (SSLC) during her studies.
