Ms Samantha Aspinall

Professional Development Co-ordinator responsible for PhD and Post-doc training

My key interest is professional development in academic research. I work with PhD students, research staff and early career academics on development programmes. My particular areas of interest are courses and workshops on enterprise, public engagement, communication and creative thinking all focussed around interdisciplinary collaborations.

My other real interest is ideas. I strongly believe that everyone working in an organisation, if asked, would have an idea to improve practices, processes or products. My first role at the University of Leeds was to research people in the public, private and not for profit sectors. People described as intrapreneurs, people who are enterprising in their place of work. I interviewed many interesting people and have a wealth of stories of both small and large changes that these people have made. I am looking to interview researchers who fit this description

Specialties:

  • Professional development for researchers, helping people explore all the options
  • Understanding and developing intrapreneurial behaviour in organisations
  • I am a qualified MBTI practitioner, Step I&II
