Thanks Melinda and Simon – I agree with Laura (so glad you visited us at UniMelb), this is a fabulous post. It's a great way to connect and reconnect with people and I'm looking forward to your PRA 2021 session.
I'm Bry (Bryony Wakefield) from Australia. I enjoy working as the Director, Research Development, in the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences at the University of Melbourne. This means I get to work with a great group of people, providing support in the areas of research strategy, governance, collaboration and funding and research performance. I've been working in higher education for ~20 years. I thoroughly enjoy working in research administration/management and seeing our profession grow.
Post threads such as this are a reminder of how fortunate we are to be able to reach out, support and learn from each other. Also currently really enjoying Simon's tweets of his dog Violet and her three gorgeous puppies. On the personal side I enjoy gardening, going for walks, catching up with friends for good conversation/laughs - goodness, is this what real speed dating is like!
Look forward to seeing you in the virtual world at PRA.
