"I am a PGT Programmes Administrator, supporting a complex MSc programme delivered by a consortium of universities within the UK. The job is very rewarding, and I feel proud to be part of a fantastic community of students, academics and Professional Services staff within FSE. I balance my administrative work alongside a varied practice as a visual artist and creative, and over the last couple of years I have been exploring and understanding creativity within the context of higher education. Working with a medical student on an animation that would help make their research more accessible, illustrating conversations with people in Manchester about ‘utopian learning spaces’, and hosting a virtual ‘Lockdown Art School’ with colleagues in my office have highlighted the important role that creativity plays within HE and I am looking forward to more conversations, collaborations and creative interventions in the future."⁠ ⁠

"Little did I know that I would be staying for so long, when I came to Manchester in 2014. It has been an incredible journey over the past 6 years in the University - I worked as a Marie Curie fellow, as an independent researcher (Leverhulme fellow, Kathleen Ollerenshaw Fellow) and started my own research group as Royal Society URF (we work on the tiniest one atom thin capillaries). It has been a great opportunity for learning working alongside world-leading scientists. On the personal side, I got married and had two lovely children during my time here. ⁠
One thing which I understand is that you can make a difference in whichever stage of career or life you are at. I started as an early career champion in my department soon after becoming an independent researcher, where I could positively impact fellow research associates and PhD students by organizing training workshops for fellowship and grant writing to enable their success to independent careers. Apart from running my own research group, I also get to play an important role in University’s IDEAS forum, aimed to facilitate new collaborations across the University to help deliver leading research."⁠ ⁠
