More about me: 

Before moving into my current role I was already working for Study Higher as a Higher Education Liaison Officer, working alongside targeted schools to develop, facilitate, and deliver outreach activities. I’ve been involved in various forms of academic outreach and public engagement for years, and have been leading Widening Participation initiatives since 2013. Having been a serial student as I worked my way up to hold a PhD in Ancient History in between spending time working as a manager in the ‘real world’, I’m thoroughly immersed in the world of academia and its transformative power for the individual and society.
