Personal profile

Research Interests

  • Student lived experiences, in particular the extent to which technology and globalisation have affected Higher Education.
  • History of student activism, in particular the extent to which the past can be used as an explanation / research focus for contemporary activism.
  • Digital Humanities, in particular the applicability of digital techniques to traditional Humanities data.
  • Employability, in particular the evolving landscape for Humanities & Social Sciences graduates.
  • Political participation, especially amongst young people and the influence of technology and social media on this. 


Having studied for an MA in International Relations at the University, I then gained experience in STEM through working in the Faculty of Technology's Placements Team for several years. My work particularly focused on empowering and guiding students towards Industrial and Summer Placements. 

Once this role concluded, I took on a PhD in SASSHPL, exploring the evolution of student activism through digitised media. Due to my expertise in STEM, I was eager to take on a PhD sitting at that disciplinary intersection. 

Alongside my PhD, I work as a Learning Development Tutor; am Course Representative as well as the elected Student Representative on the Graduate School's Management Board; an Events Coordinator for the Research Centre CEISR, and also contribute at the Student Union, as Co-Founder of the PGR Society.
