Before joining the University I worked as a drug, alcohol and sexual health advisor in Glasgow and also in the project management team of a pharmaceutical testing company in Dundee. I joined the postgraduate research service of the University of Glasgow in November 2008, where my role involved scholarships and funding administration (including the monitoring of research council funded studentships and maintaining compliance with RCUK regulations), support for the Institutional management of Postgraduate Research and support for the University’s cross-disciplinary Strategic Research Networks, including GRAMNet. I was lucky enough to be involved with GRAMNet from the very early stages and assist as it grew at an exponetial rate! I have a BSc in Psychology from the University of Glasgow and a Masters degree in science from the Open University.
Maternity cover for Lauren from April 2015 until March 2016. Having studied various languages and holding a BA in European Studies from the University of Amsterdam, I have a keen interest in this project’s outcomes and it’s approach to researching multilingually, in particular around borders. Before joining the team, I worked as an administrator in International Operations at Edinburgh Napier University, where I organised travel for my colleagues and monitored scholarship administration. Before moving to Scotland I worked for a number of years as the Head of School Administration at a small language school in France and as Administrator at the Institute for Dutch Language Education at the University of Amsterdam.
