Education (2015 cohort)

I am a doctoral student at Brasenose College and the Department of Education, specialising in digital technologies and interdisciplinarity. My research investigates the use of technology for interdisciplinary collaboration between the social sciences, applied sciences and humanities within Higher Education, and is funded by the Economic and Social Sciences Research Council (ESRC) and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). I am also part of the Learning and New Technologies research group.

Alongside my doctoral work, I work part-time for the International Institute of Educational Planning (IIEP) at UNESCO. I am also a Research Assistant at the Oxford Internet Institute, exploring the digital transformation of teaching through objects.

Prior to my doctoral studies, I was awarded a distinction for the MSc in Education (Learning and Technology) at the University of Oxford. I completed a BA (Hons) in Classics at the University of Cambridge, during which time I was Vice-President of my Junior Common Room and also worked for the Admissions Office in Educational Outreach. I hold a PGC in International Business Administration and Practice, and have earned scholarships to study at the British Schools of Athens and Rome.

Between my periods of study, I have worked as an Analyst for The Futures Company (WPP) in London, and within the Finance division for Thomson Reuters in New York City.
