Dr Tiffany Hicks


I am the Project Manager of RiboCode: a five-year BBSRC strategic Longer and Larger (sLoLa) grant led by Dr Julie Aspden at the University of Leeds, in conjunction with the University of Nottingham and University of Sheffield.

I joined the University of Leeds in 2015 to undertake a PhD in soil ecology and ecosystem function in the School of Biology. Upon graduating in 2018 I moved into research project management, first coordinating Maths Foresees: an EPSRC-funded research network based in the School of Mathematics, and then EuroFLOW: a Marie Skłodowska Curie Innovative Training Network based in the School of Geography.
