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 women. I then spent a few years at the UK human rights NGO Liberty. Before starting my PhD, I spent the summer as the press officer for Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party leadership campaign.

My reasearch interests lie in political philosophy and political theory. I am especially interested in feminism, egalitarianism, and theories of social construction.

Other academic interests

Foucault. Markets, capitalism and neoliberalism. Cultural studies.
