I came up to Oxford in 2010 to read for the MSt in Greek and Roman History at Brasenose College and I enjoyed it so much I stayed for the DPhil in Ancient History, completing in 2017. My thesis (Renewing Athens: the Ideology of the Past in Roman Greece) explored the role of the Athenian past in defining the city’s identity in the 2nd century AD. Outside of my role at Queen’s, I keep up with a little research and writing for enjoyment.
It was during my time as a postgraduate student in Oxford that I began working in university and college administration, and having found immense satisfaction in helping students navigate their degree programmes, I decided to pursue academic administration as a career. I have found that my past experience studying and teaching for the University has given me a well-rounded perspective on college life and the needs and expectations of students and tutors.
I joined The Queen’s College as the Academic Administrator in 2019. In this role I oversee the work of the College Office which looks after the student journey from admissions, through on-course administration, exams and assessments, to graduation. I work closely with the Senior Tutor on a variety of matters including academic recruitment processes, and support a number of College Committees. I am also the Disability Coordinator for Queen’s.
