Ruth has been working for DSPI since February 2017. Her role involves management of internal and external communications, ensuring that the department's research and teaching excellence is broadcast effectively.
This is Ruth's first role at the University. Prior to this, she worked in the local voluntary sector in communications, project management, fundraising and community development. As a long-time resident of Oxford she is keen to see the University's fascinating range of research reach the ears and minds of those who live and work locally.
Ruth's background is in arts and education, and she believes these skills are essential bedrocks for excellent communications.
