I am delighted to be a part of this year’s Jesus College Telephone Campaign. I am entering my third year of study in the PhD program for Multi-disciplinary Gender Studies. I have had the pleasure of studying at Jesus for both this degree and for my MPhil degree on the same subject.
The topic of my thesis pertains to feminist political parties, and I am investigating these parties’ impacts on women’s representation, women’s social movements, and government institutions. Without the College’s generous support, I would be unable to conduct this exciting research. It is for this reason that I am dedicated to serving the College. Most recently, I’ve been elected MCR Women’s Welfare Officer for the upcoming academic year.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading, mudlarking in the River Thames, attending rock concerts, and visiting friends and family in my home state of Connecticut in the United States.
