Her role includes providing support and management to the Working Group, seed-fund calls for climate and sustainability projects, and a programme of research-related activities. She works closely with faculties, institutes and the Research Management & Innovation Directorate teams to ensure activities are successfully developed and delivered.

Adélia joined KCS in January 2024.
