Ayesha Ahmed

Head of Operations and Strategy


I joined King's in June 2022 as Head of Operations at King's Academy. I lead on the operational delivery of programmes, and in supporting the development of evaluation and impact frameworks with the team.

Prior to this I held a number of roles at UCL, most recently as a Research Manager for the Centre for Adolescent Rheumatology at UCL, UCLH and GOSH where I led on creating new infrastructure and processes that supported the delivery of clinical work and research. I also led on Patient Engagement and Involvement working closely with colleagues in the Biomedical Research Centres, the University of Manchester and as co-speaker in conferences. I am passionate about EDI, and represented the Professional Services Team within my Faculty, and was involved in mentoring colleagues

I have a Neuroscience MSc from King’s, a BSc in Biomedicine from Birkbeck, and a qualification in APM Project Management
