I am currently on secondment to the External Relations Office with responsibility for leading an in-depth, data-driven mapping and scoping exercise to lay the groundwork for a new Partnerships Office.
Previously, I held a role as a commercialisation executive with MaynoothWorks from 2015 – 2023, where I worked on all aspects of commercialisation and technology transfer.
My academic background includes a Ph.D. from the School of Medicine at UCD in 2011. Subsequently, I pursued a Master's in Business at UCD Smurfit School of Business. Additionally, I recently completed a Diploma in Coaching and am currently studying for a Diploma in Organisational Change and Transformation, both at UCD Smurfit School of Business.
