Francesca Richards

Research Impact Facilitator

As one of three Research Impact Facilitators, I am a primary point of contact for support and advice on research impact and engagement. I provide technical expertise and actively assist academic colleagues and departmental support staff to undertake and record impact, maximise its reach and significance, construct effective narratives for REF Impact Case studies underpinned by appropriate evidence and evaluation of impact.

I work closely with Sam Harper, Rebecca Jones, Research Impact Facilitators, and Tom Korff, Senior Impact and Engagement Manager, to build impact capacity within and across departments, including training, feedback and expert advice.


I am the lead contact for:

  • School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography
  • School of Geography and the Environment
