I've worked at the OU in a variety of administrative roles since 1990, and have been Senior Faculty Administrator in Science since November 2006. In 2016 Science merged with Maths, Computing and Technology Faculty to form the Faculty of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and I took on the role of Head of Business Planning and Research, leading the functions supporting strategy, finance, research, enterprise and IT.
My educational background is not a science one - I have an MA in classics from Oxford University - but one wouldn't want to get too comfortable.
In addition to teaching on Open University modules our academics are engaged in ground breaking research that benefits individuals and society.
