Stephanie provides senior practitioner support to Warwick’s research community on global sustainable development. This includes the provision of full life-cycle support to develop a community of researchers, research supervisors, and stakeholders, to create new and equitable research partnerships with impact to global sustainable development challenges.

Leading on a university-wide programme that brings together transdisciplinary research groups and external stakeholders to create new research collaborations and subsequent research proposals in partnership with Research and Impact Services is a key part of her role. In addition, the Programme and Evaluation Manager will support the provision of guidance around the UN Sustainable Development Goals with regards to how groups across the University may collaborate with external stakeholders in equitable partnerships to generate excellent research.

Stephanie will also provide guidance to academic colleagues on the planning, monitoring and evaluation of projects to deliver impact towards the UN SDGs, for example using methods such as theory of change.

Stephanie is the first point of contact for all administrative matters at the Institute for Global Sustainable Development (IGSD).


Previously, Stephanie was the Programme Administrator for the Sustainable Cities Global Research Priority at Warwick, coordinating a programme of activity that stimulated and supported interdisciplinary urban research with impact. Prior to joining Warwick, Stephanie was based in London as a Director at the Caribbean Council, a not-for-profit consultancy supporting two-way trade and investment between the UK and the Caribbean, where she led on a variety of projects and developed a specialist focus on tourism.
