Research Manager, DCE Group



Helen started her career in business-to-business research consultancy, managing research projects for global logistics suppliers including DHL, UPS and TNT.  As Associate Director of RS Consulting, Helen conducted high level interviews and presented research findings in many countries - in the US, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Germany, France and Belgium to name but a few.   In 2013 Helen left the field of research to help establish (with a team of 3 other people) a successful travel agency, Alternative Aquitaine, specialising in villa holidays in south-west France.  Having sold the company to Simpson Travel, Helen then joined the University of Exeter in June 2021.   Helen’s first post at the university was Administrator for the TARC (Tax Administration Research Centre) centre in the University of Exeter Business School, supporting the TARC team in their work.  She moved to the Engineering Department in May 2022, where she now supports Tim Dodwell’s Data Centric Engineering (DCE) Group.
