About Me.

I'm Kristin. Picture this: I co-wrote my first six-figure grant during my very first year of my PhD journey. From that point on, I was hooked on the thrill of securing grants. I funded my postdoctoral fellowship with grant magic and went on to work in a clinical research role. I've since worked as a Funding Advisor and Research Manager with hands-on experience and in-depth knowledge of the grant funding landscape.


My mission is to share the knowledge and experience I've gained with early career researchers like you. On this platform, I aim to demystify the process of applying for research funding in New Zealand and provide you with the tools and guidance you need to succeed. Feel free to explore my site further, where you'll find resources, advice, and inspiration to kickstart your research funding endeavours.
