Ruth Devaraj

I am pleased to announce that Ruth Devaraj has joined the Collaborating Centre’s management team as Centre administrator from 1st March 2023.

She will be taking over the routine management of the Centre’s seminars and supporting me and Bill Fulford in the administration. Ruth comes to us with extensive experience of course management and her short bio can be found here on the management Team page:

Ruth will have a period of handover from Mihir Sheth over the next 2 months as Mihir takes on more work in his Role as Engineer and Innovator in Residence at Oxford University Hospitals and his research in the Institute  of Bio-Engineering at Oxford University. Mihir will remain a part of the Centre as Joint Lead for the Digital Health and Innovation network and in a consulting capacity to support Ruth.

I hope that you will all wish a warm welcome to Ruth and I am sure you will be impressed with her efficiency! Bill and I wish to take this opportunity to thank Mihir for all his hard work for the Collaborating Centre over the last 2 years and we are pleased that he will continue to work with us.
