Work in progress

Prior to working with CDRC I worked as a Project Officer for TALISMAN – a node of the National Centre for Research Methods – which was funded by the ESRC and based at the University of Leeds and University College London. TALISMAN was successful in developing and extending state of the art geospatial methods as part of a larger strategy to improve the standard of research methods across the UK social science community. In my capacity as Project Officer, I was responsible for co-ordinating research activities, managing TALISMAN’s extensive training and knowledge exchange programmes, and for promoting the project to national and international audiences.

TALISMAN is a node of the National Centre for Research Methods (NCRM) and is funded through the Economic and Social Research Council as part of a strategy to improve the standard of research methods across the UK social science community. The project is focused on developing and extending state of the art geospatial methods in the form of new data techniques and new simulation models.

As Project Assistant for TALISMAN, I am responsible for coordinating activities between the TALISMAN team – located at the University of Leeds and University College London – and the NCRM’s Hub in Southampton. My key responsibilities include managing the node’s extensive training and capacity-building activities, as well as marketing and promoting the project throughout the UK. I maintain the TALISMAN website and provide both research and administrative support to the project team.

As part of the TALISMAN team, I am passionate about supporting methodological innovation by forging links between cutting-edge research and capacity-building.
