Job title

Publisher Microbiology


I have worked in publishing with Elsevier since 2012 where I started out providing journal editorial and publishing support to the research communities, based in the Oxford office in the UK. I soon moved into the editorial submission system training team during which I delivered almost 500 training sessions to journal editors on various submission systems, including Editorial Manager. In early 2019, in addition to playing a role in launching new journals onto editorial submission systems, I was involved in the migration of the Lancet journals to Editorial Manager. During a recent short spell away from Elsevier in 2018, I worked for a Registered Training Provider delivering training courses in Negotiation to Commercial Officers in the British Army, as well as Change Management training to managers in the National Health Service. I have a degree in applied languages from the University of Portsmouth and I have recently moved into a new role as a Publisher supporting the microbiology portfolio. Follow me on LinkedIn.
