Head of Operations

Head of Operations, Oxford Respiratory Trials Unit

I have worked at the Oxford Respiratory Trials Unit since 2009. My current role involves managing a team of research professionals to deliver the trials being run through the unit. I ensure that appropriate funding, systems and resources are in place to ensure trials are delivered on time and within budget, and meet the appropriate clinical trial and research governance requirements.

Prior to joining ORTU I worked in the Pharmaceutical/Biotech Industry for over 10 years. I have worked across a range of therapeutic areas and phases of trials in various roles including trial management and monitoring, data management, feasibility and strategy development.
