Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership - Student Profiles



I took my BA in English at Churchill College, Cambridge (2013), before doing the MSt (2016) at Somerville College, Oxford, where my studies were generously supported by the Clarendon Fund. I returned to Cambridge in January 2018 to begin my doctoral research, under the supervision of Dr Gavin Alexander.


I am interested in sixteenth-century poetics, form, and the (non-Euclidean) geometries of the (nonhuman) world.
