Destination: University of Oxford

Subject: PhD in Physics

Date of Leaving Hatch End High School: July 2011


Having left Hatch End High School in 2011, I am currently studying for my PhD in Physics at Oxford. I’m a passionate advocate for increasing the diversity at Oxford, and I am particularly interested in recruiting more students from state schools to the Physics course.

I owe a lot of my success to the teachers who pushed me to succeed while I was at Hatch End. I was a student of the Physics undergrad course, and I am now a tutor for some courses as well as an interviewer for the undergrad Physics course. I have previously given talks on admissions, women in physics, and my research in general.
