culture + environment creating health + wellbeing engaged research

Lucy Hodges

Assistant Centre Manager


My academic background is in the Humanities – I have a BA (Hons) in English Studies, and an MA in Eighteenth Century Studies (my first introduction to interdisciplinary research, when I combined literature, gender studies and history!). I graduated from the latter in 2010, and have worked in universities ever since.

Initially, I worked for the University of Southampton in student support, before moving to Exeter in late 2012. I worked in the Medical School from February 2013, firstly as the administrator for the Neuroscience department, and then from January 2016 until November 2017, in Research Finance.

I moved to the Wellcome Centre for Cultures and Environments of Health in November 2017, firstly as the Centre Administrator, but following a successful promotion in June 2018, as the Assistant Centre Manager.

What I do

I oversee the administration of the Centre, leading the Research Support team and supporting the Director with Centre Operations.

In my spare time, I’m a blogger, a keen knitter and an aspiring podcaster – all with varying degrees of success!
