Having previously worked as an academic and academic administrator in various institutions in the UK and abroad, I joined the Ertegun Programme as Administrator in late May 2019. I enjoy working for a scholarship programme dedicated to the Humanities since my academic training is in the same area (Classics and Byzantine Studies). After completing my postgraduate studies at the University of Oxford, I spent several years teaching and researching at Oxford and abroad before deciding to focus on an academic administrative career. In spare moments, I continue my research on Procopius of Caesarea and the age of Justinian.
Working for the Ertegun Programme is a privilege as it is a multi-faceted role which includes administrative support, event organisation, and the running of Ertegun House. The best aspect is meeting and supporting the student scholars throughout their time at the House and beyond, developing a strong network which reflects the international and diverse group of our Alumni.
