I am available to support Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) projects at the University of Essex, as well as providing wider administrative support to the Business Engagement Team. My team identifies innovative solutions to help businesses grow through knowledge exchange and partnerships with world-leading academics.
My background in marine biology, coastal ecology and botany has seen me spend the last three years partaking in a knowledge exchange role, both on-site and remotely, as a researcher liaising between the University of Essex and the partner Archipelagos Institute of Marine Conservation. During which my engagement with businesses and other higher education institutions has instigated new research collaborations with partners such as BioBase by C-Map and the Czech Academy of Sciences, Institute of Botany. It is my passion for research and knowledge exchange that has led me to my current role as Knowledge Exchange Administrator at the University of Essex.
I am also in the process of completing my research masters at the University of Essex on the carbon sequestration potential of seagrass in the Aegean Sea, completed in partnership with Archipelagos Institute of Marine Conservation.
