Dr Saher Ahmed
Head of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
I am Head of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at Genome Research Limited and co-ordinate the Campus-wide 'Equality in Science' programme, in collaboration with EMBL-European Bioinformatics Institute. I am responsible for influencing and making changes to policies, practices and provisions that disproportionately disadvantage people according to their protected characteristics.
I was awarded a BSc in Physics from the University of York in 2000; an MSc in Applied Radiation Physics from the University of Birmingham in 2001 and a PhD in Nuclear Physics from the University of Birmingham in 2005.
I have set-up national projects looking at diversity in STEM, including projects tackling the under-representation of women in STEM.
