Previous experience

Anne initially trained as a neuroscientist and has left academia twice by now: through the work for her first postdoc at the University of Oxford, she joined a biotech start-up company as a consultant and later scientist (2016–2017), then moved into medical communications and scientific editing (2017–2020). Subsequently, Anne undertook a second academic postdoc at Imperial College (2020–2022) before joining the University of Oxford’s professional services to support researcher development at the Medical Sciences Division. Anne then switched to the Careers Service team in 2023.

In parallel, Anne has also been delivering workshops to PhD students, postdocs, and group leaders as a freelance trainer, where she focuses on scientific communications, career-planning, project and time management, and work/life balance.

She is also involved in local and international illustrator communities.

Anne specialises in working with research staff at the University of Oxford. She offers one-to-one support across all disciplines and career sectors.
