As SSO for Social Anthropology and SPS Centres, I am responsible for all Social Anthropology undergraduate students, and also serve as a primary contact for all undergraduate students on Social Anthropology, Centre for African Studies, Centre for South Asian Studies, and STIS courses. 

My main areas of knowledge include:  guidance and support for students, extensions, transfers, authorised interruptions of study, JYA, and special circumstances.

I have a BA in Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology from Bryn Mawr College, and an MA and MSc in Conservation for Museums and Archaeology from University College London.

In addition to my work as an SSO, I am heavily involved with the the Staff Pride Network, the University's network for LGBT+ staff and allies.  I am also the staff Music Librarian for the SPS Community Choir.
