Meet the Team: Christie
My name is Christie and I take care of the administration for Generation Scotland. My administrative tasks are mainly centred around keeping track of our publications and access requests, coordinating meetings, and managing enquiries from the general public. I am the voice at the end of the phone if you call us for help or guidance.
In addition to Generation Scotland, I also work one day a week on the UK Longitudinal Linkage Collaboration (UK LLC). It’s a data resource set up in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which includes longitudinal studies from all over the UK (including Generation Scotland). For the UK LLC I manage our twitter, and I also assist Kirsteen in other general communications tasks.
Before coming on board with Generation Scotland in October 2020, I have worked in laboratory-based roles – with SHARE at the University of Dundee, and also in NHS haematology and blood transfusions. My degree is in Natural Sciences, and I have an interest in research which is what brought me to GS. Going forward I will be involved in the sample coordination for Generation Scotland’s expansion, and I hope that my laboratory experience will be helpful here.
Outwith my role, myself and my partner do home and furniture renovations, and we like to go exploring with our whippet puppy.
