“She provides the best advice in the most difficult situations aligned with the Code of Practice. Thank you very much for supporting us in our roles as academics. Much appreciated.”

“She is an outstanding supervisor, superb at challenging me, supporting the development of my research/critical thinking skills. She is incredibly knowledgeable and has provided me with outstanding levels of support and stellar guidance during my PhD journey so far.”
