The two Patricks

The Patrick Hackett some of us may be more familiar with is a Research Strategy Coordinator (RSC) within the Faculty of Science and Engineering. Patrick joined the University in 2004, after studying for his undergraduate degree at UMIST. He left to work in financial services and online retail in 2009 before returning to the University in 2013.
