Executive Assistant to Professor Matthew Rushworth, Head of Department

I provide executive support to Professor Matthew Rushworth and manage his administrative office as Head of Department. I’m the first point of contact for the Head of Department’s office and am involved in supporting and/or coordinating a wide range of departmental activities.

I act as secretary to the EP Departmental Board and provide support to a number of other departmental committees. I organise a range of meetings and events, including the Departmental Seminar series. 

I joined the Department of Experimental Psychology in March 2021.  Previous positions in the University included Operations Manager in Research Services (2012-2018) and PA/Office Manager in the International Strategy Office (2010-2012).  Prior to joining the University I worked in various administrative roles at the Picker Institute, an international healthcare charity, focusing on researching and understanding individuals’ needs and their experiences of care (2000-2009).  I was awarded an MBA from Oxford Brookes University in 2006.
