Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership - Student Profiles



After an undergraduate degree in politics, philosophy and economics and a Masters in philosophy and law, I was briefly a community worker, working with long-term unemployed people. I then worked at the UK human rights NGO Liberty. Before starting my PhD, I was the press officer for Jeremy Corbyn's 2015 Labour Party leadership campaign.

My reasearch interests lie in political theory. My thesis addresses how injustices of gender, race, and class are reproduced, and attempts to repoliticise the economy and economic distributions. It draws on critical race theory, intersectional theory, feminist work on choice and agency, the philosophy of economics and social science, and theories of social construction.
