Africa Regional Lead
I am a Knowledge Transfer Manager for International & Development and lead our programmes in Africa. I am responsible for the delivery and management of Innovate UK KTN’s international programmes, facilitating research and innovation collaborations with key economies around the world.
Previously I worked for an International Development consulting company responsible for the delivery of multi-stakeholder, overseas development assistance programmes across a range of sectors and countries. I held the role of the Programme Coordinator for one of the UK Department for International Development’s first trilateral cooperation programmes to effectively triangulate UK Aid with Chinese South-South cooperation.
I have lived and worked in East Africa. I hold an MSc in International Development from the University of Bath and a BSc in Economics from University of York.
