REF Open Access Officer
I am part of the team responsible for compiling, analysing and processing the Medical Sciences Division’s submission to REF 2021. We manage the preparation of strategy, narrative and data for our REF submissions and the processes within the Division required to deliver them, working closely with colleagues in Departments and the wider University. My responsibility is for ensuring the research papers which are part of the submission comply with Open Access requirements, helping the University fulfil its goal of ensuring the widest possible access to its research.
Prior to joining the Medical Sciences Division, I worked in the Communications team at Oxfordshire Mind preparing data and sense-checking content for some of their flagship publications, such as the directory of mental health services in Oxfordshire: the ‘Mind Guide’. Before that in 2018, I graduated from Oxford with a BA (Hons) in History and Politics, and was a keen rugby player at my constituent college.
