After a yearlong secondment as Senior Technician, managing the Faculty of Science and Engineering LABplus Resource Centre, supporting STEM teaching and learning e.g. by developing online resources for undergraduate students, I return to my usual role in the School of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics.

Here, I manage resources from Smeaton Store in the open plan Robotics and Electronics lab facility, supporting teaching and learning by issuing loan-able equipment for undergraduate students, running the School’s estore page, and complete purchases from external suppliers for project student, workshops and academic and research staff.
