Senior Research Facilitator
I joined NDPH to work as the Senior Research Facilitator for the China Kadoorie Biobank in 2014. I have a lead role in many of the central operations of the study, working closely with the study principal investigators and the executive and steering committees. With a small research support team, I help manage aspects of the group’s established research programme and help to promote international collaborations and engagement with the resource. This covers financial and contractual components; data access and sharing; communications and research administration.
I have previously worked as a project manager with a number of international NGOs on social development and environmental conservation issues. I joined the University of Oxford in 2001, ending up managing a large programme grant from the Department for International Development which aimed to deliver research-based improvements to humanitarian policy making and practice. Following that I led the administrative establishment and assisted the strategic development of the George Institute for Global Heath’s UK operations.
