I have worked in the University of Oxford as an Administrator for over twenty years and prior to that I was both an undergraduate and graduate student here at Pembroke College. Although I read Botany as an undergraduate my interest in the history of science developed and my DPhil thesis focused on the seventeenth century Cambridge polymath John Ray. I am a keen amateur photographer and filmmaker and some of my work can be seen in University publications and websites. As Administrator at Ertegun House I have the great pleasure of working with Scholars from all over the world pursuing a wide variety of disciplines from within the Humanities. It is a privilege to witness them come to Ertegun House and participate in the Ertegun Graduate Scholarship Programme, growing in intellectual stature as they take advantage of the international and interdisciplinary nature of the the Programme.
