Professional Background

Prior to joining RGU, Ros was educated at Strathclyde (BSc(Hons)) and Glasgow (MSc) Universities before starting a progressive move north. Gaining a PhD in microbiology at Abertay University in Dundee, which involved working in Italy and Canada, she then moved on to a Post-doctoral Research position at The University of Aberdeen.

Deciding to shift career from scientific research, Ros made a move into science communication within the science centre network, and was Operations & Education Manager at Satrosphere Science Centre, in Aberdeen, for four years, with responsibility for science, exhibitry and education. Making the move to RGU has allowed her to utilise and expand on her academic and managerial experience in a technological environment.
