Science and Engineering Research Support Facility (SERSF):, University of Exeter, Penryn Campus, Penryn, Cornwall, TR10 9FE, UK

Role

Ruth has several years of experience supporting research and development projects in collaboration with industrial and academic partners.

She is currently working on a European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) project that provides focussed support to SMEs based in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly (C&IoS) helping them to realise their growth potential through innovation. The project aims to improve productivity and deliver economic growth by stimulating early stage Research Development and Innovation (RD&I) activity.

Profile

Ruth joined the University in February 2017 from Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG). In her previous role she was responsible for several industry funded research projects which focused on the environmental, social and financial implications of the materials and manufacturing processes within sectors such as automotive, energy and aerospace.

In 2010, Ruth graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Renewable Energy and is Associate of the Camborne School of Mines (ACSM) from the University of Exeter. She was later awarded the degree of Doctor in Philosophy in Engineering and postgraduate award in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education from the University of Warwick.
