In 2020 I became Director of the Warwick Institute of Engagement, a body whose creation I am excited to have been involved with from the start.

The Warwick Institute of Engagement champions the future of high quality public engagement. It brings together Warwick’s extensive practical engagement expertise with pioneering academic research. We’re putting evidence-led best practice at the core of our thinking – ensuring Warwick’s engagement with the public drives real impact for the communities we serve.

The Institute is an exciting venture co-led by myself and Jane Furze. It is home to a dedicated team of professional support staff, academics, and our cohort of engagement fellows. We work across Warwick’s hugely talented staff and student communities, and collaborate extensively with our many wonderful external partners.
