Research Administrator (Part-time 60%)
Administrative Staff

My role in the Department of Mathematics is Research Administrator (60% time) providing support for staff, their research groups, and the department’s Research Committee (including processing funding application costings, research grant management, The York Research Database (PURE) website support and administration for REF2020, Departmental news and Departmental Events webpages).

Department Research Committee Members:

Professor Martin Bees (Chair since April 2014)
Professor Niall MacKay (HOD)
Professor Paul Busch (GSC)
Dr Marina Knight (Impact Manager)
Dr Julie Wilson (Equality and Good Practice)

Professor Victoria Gould (Head of Pure Mathematics)
Professor Chris Fewster (Head of Applied Mathematics)
Professor Wenyang Zhang (Head of Statistics)
Dr Alan Haynes (Pure Mathematics)

Emma Hodgson (Department Manager)
Annabel Jenkins (Department Research Facilitator (50% Mathematics 50% Environment))
Christine Cockett (Research Administrator)

For many years my role (research support) included collation of news items for the University of York magazine news submission (2000-2015); I'd offer to take portraits for staff if they didn't have a photo to use in my own time and had an A0 poster of staff photos printed in 2012 for display in the Department. In my own time I also started to take photos of campus for certain departmental events, or to capture the graduation celebrations.  22 December 2014 an interview about my photography was featured in the #HumansOfYork Facebook series (No.52). I post photos in (a free photo gallery), and post campus wildlife videos on Facebook, and contributed photos to the University of York Monopoly set.

2016 poster day and barbeque photos are available on Flickr (album currently under construction), and 2016 Quadra-Sci Sports Day videos (piggy back racing, three legged race, wheel barrow racing...) and photo album (tug of war) are available on Facebook (links above). Photgraphy is done in my own time for fun!
