Nationality: 
British

With the Ertegun Scholarship I completed the MSt in World Literatures in English, a course convened by Professor Elleke Boehmer and Dr. Michelle Kelly. My dissertation was supervised by Dr. Justine McConnell and entitled 'The Middle Repassage', examining African diasporic travelogues that retrace histories of slavery. I am now Creative Industries Policy Advisor in the Department of Culture, Media and Sport, and Co-Editor-in-Chief of The Inkling.

Ertegun House was my home in Oxford, and the Ertegun community remains an integral part of my intellectual and social life.
