I am the Academic Development Lead for Research, based in the Organisational and Staff Development Unit at the University of Strathclyde.  My role includes development and delivery of the SPARK and SPIRAL programmes as well as PGR Supervisor training at Strathclyde. These programmes support the professional and career development of academic and research staff at Strathclyde. I also deliver researcher development activities for institutions across the UK.
