With over 10 years of experience in the field of Research Management, Barbara has experience with the development of Projects but her main focus has been with the Post Award Management of projects (including financial reporting) and client portfolios with special emphasis on multi-national projects with specific funder requirements for example the EC funded programmes.

Before joining Wits Enterprise, Barbara was a member of the University of the Witwatersrand support staff where she fulfilled many different roles including assisting with research activities for example the development of a Clinical Research facility and running a self-supporting service laboratory. All of these enabled Barbara to gain insight into the Research environment and general business and financial management practices which together provide a strong foundation for her current role.
