I hold a politics BA from Warwick & an MSc in Development from SOAS where my thesis considered the political economy of development of HIV/AIDS in China. Currently I am working as an interim Commercial Manager with the Pension Protection Fund. Having undertaken work in relation to an IT insource, I have been retained to deliver the procurement of an Investment Performance System. Prior to the PPF I was engaged at Transport for London. With TFL I successfully fought a commercial dispute against France's leading rolling stock company in the high court, sat on a pan-TFL Brexit working group and developed a commercial strategy & established links with trade bodies to expand TFL’s supply chain for bespoke manufacturing. My experience throughout my career has shown a great adaptability, variety and success.
