Helen Allwood

LuCiD Centre Manager

A bit about Helen Allwood

I have a undergraduate degree in English from the University of Birmingham, with an exchange year at University of British Columbia in Vancouver. After graduating, I worked in project and grant management in the sports industry, before taking these skills to the higher education sector at the UCL Institute for Global Health.

Prior to joining LuCiD, I was Assistant Manager of the Malaria Capacity Development Consortium at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM). Whilst working at LSHTM, I completed a part time MSc in Information Science at University College London. I joined LuCiD and the University of Manchester in September 2014. I am proud to be a governor at Lark Hill Nursery School in Edgeley, Stockport. 

My Role in LuCiD

I oversee the day to day operations of the Centre and coordinate the impact and communications strategy. I'm based in Manchester, but provide support across the LuCiD network.
