How did your journey into Physics begin?

I studied Biological Sciences and started my career in the agrochemical industry, carrying out biological testing in the lab and field. I then moved into research administration, joining the research office at Warwick 15 years ago and taking up the Senior Administrative Officer position in Physics in 2015.

What is your favourite thing about working in the department?

Working alongside world-class researchers and supporting the breadth of research and teaching activities in an academic physics department means no day is the same- there is always a problem to solve!

Why do you think it is important to highlight women and gender minorities in science? What does it mean to you?

It is important to me to break down the stereotypes and barriers within science. We have made a lot of progress in recent years but there is still some way to go to make opportunities accessible at every life/ career stage.
