About Me: 

I am the programme officer for IDEA UK which means I help write funding proposals, do some of our admin, reporting and evaluation, and some of our communications as well as some content for this website.

Previously I was content officer for IDEA UK, a role that mostly involved working on idebate.org coordinating and writing debatabase content and moderating the site.

I came to IDEA from Debatewise where I was in a similar content role.

Before that I was a University Student at Nottingham University and Aberdeen University studying International Relations and History.
