As the new editor of the Camberwell, Chelsea & Wimbledon Graduate School Blog I thought it would be a good idea to introduce myself.
My name is Nick and I first started working in research administration in 2011 at TrAIN Research Centre (just down the corridor). Over the years I worked closely with UAL’s Research Office (RMA) and then became a Research Funding Coordinator. This involved working closely with academics from across the university in assisting them with submitting research proposals and bids. I left UAL in October 2014 to join the University of East London in a similar role as Research Funding Officer only to return to UAL and to Chelsea in January 2016 as Graduate School Administrator.
I thoroughly enjoy working in a research environment and have a strong affection for the arts and humanities.
I graduated from Goldsmiths College in 2011 after receiving a BA in Social & Cultural Studies. I live in South East London and I love walking, visiting the BFI and drinking bucket loads of tea. In my spare time I volunteer for Blackshaw Theatre Company as the Funding & Partnerships Manager using my experience gained within HE and research to help out with funding productions. It’s not an easy job but it’s fun nonetheless.
