My role at SAMS
In my evolving role at SAMS, I am learning new ways to support the existing ACES+ students, anticipating an expansion of our programme. The focus areas are organising and planning around recruitment, admissions, exam boards and supporting learning & teaching core subject areas in aquaculture and supporting the module leaders.
The conference is the culmination of research for our completing students, and I have enjoyed planning around this year’s event in Radboud. I am looking forward to induction week in Oban to support new students and at the same time support the success of the graduands.
As part of the SAMS education team, based at the Sheina Marshall Building, I am particularly involved in supporting the full administrative process for the Erasmus Mundus ACES+ Programme, communicating widely across the core delivery partners and associated partners to deliver internships and dissertation opportunities for our international student group. Additionally, I will be liaising with our European project officers and supporting new ways of marketing the programme.
I am always keen to embrace new opportunities for ongoing personal development and am currently working towards gaining my Charter, updating on my Digital Certificate and Cybersecurity.
Key areas of academic interest include philosophy of biology, theology, education. Key themes include STEM; equality, diversity and inclusion; international and commercial interests.
