I am the administrator on the OPTIMA project supporting staff and students in the University of Edinburgh. I manage and organise the student administration for the project, ensuring details of students, courses and programmes are stored accurately on the University system. I organise events, for example, summer schools and induction. A large part of my role is to monitor all financial related aspects of the project and ensure expenses and other financial related matters are processed timeously and efficiently. I liaise with applicants regarding their applications and interview arrangements and manage the logistics of organising the interviews.
