Previously, Kelly was the coordinator for the EPSRC/ESRC-funded International Centre for Infrastructure Research as well as STEaPP’s Research Coordinator working closely with the Research Director, Dr Michele Acuto, meeting with all STEaPP staff to build a picture of current interests and how this will shape STEaPP’s research strategy.
