Director and Staff

The RAI is led by a director, Professor Adam Smith, and a deputy director, Dr Uta Balbier. We have a small but dedicated team led by a full-time manager, Katy Long. Our administrative and operations assistant is Richard Purkiss (part-time, Monday to Wednesday) and our academic programme and events assistant is Hannah Greiving (full-time). The Vere Harmsworth Librarian, Bethan Davies, is also a core member of the RAI leadership team.
