Biography

35 years' administrative and secretarial experience in both the public and private sectors. Have followed the progression of the administrative role, from the traditional shorthand typist/personal secretary, through the development of word processing, the desk-top PC and the evolution of the digital age.

I have also been involved in research and worked as a Research Associate in the Human Factors Research Group for approximately 6 years, participating in a variety of EU-sponsored projects. The research focused mainly on the user experience perspective of interaction with technology and systems. This involved a little overseas travel, attending regular project team meetings, running studies with user groups and contributing to the production of project deliverables, ethics applications and research papers.

I have since spent 2 years working in the School of Education in a fixed term role, as Projects Assistant supporting staff on research projects.

My most recent role, still within the University of Nottingham, is as School Administrator with the School of Chemistry.
