Jo has been the Associate Dean, Student Affairs and Service Quality for the Health Science and Medicine faculty since January 2017 and works strategically with senior colleagues within faculty and across the university to ensure that the student experience is foremost.

The group contributes to the work of the Student Wellbeing and Safety Advisory Committee that reports directly to the VC.
