Gretta has been a member of UCSF for over ten years and took over the role of Chair of the Management Group in January 2021 having previously served as Treasurer and Event Coordinator. 

With a background in microbiology (sorry folks!!!), Gretta took her first safety steps as a H&S Coordinator in the Department of Surgery at Imperial College London, before joining the H&S Services team at University of Reading as the Biological and Scientific Safety Adviser. 

After a brief detour to Swansea University, Gretta now leads on Chemical, Biological and Radiation Safety at Durham University and has a particular interest in behavioural safety and culture, training and local exhaust ventilation.
