Project Manager

I am the Project Manager (PM) for Knowledge in Action for Urban Equality (KNOW). I am part of the primary management team of KNOW and play a strategic role in coordinating the implementation of the programme across its four years.

I am a PRINCE2 Practitioner with a MSc in Management with Business Innovation from Birkbeck College, University of London.

I have 10 plus years of experience in project management that I have gained from working in the private sector managing large-scale research programmes for global organisations spanning across different sectors and geographies, including Latin America, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.
I am knowledgeable in the engagement of stakeholders and local partners with a focus on the implementation of strategies aimed at fostering collaborative working practices.

I have vast experience in budget management and the set-up of financial systems to track expenditure and report on financial progress. I specialise in the deployment of techniques for continual process improvement to ensure research programmes are managed as efficiently as possible.
