Currently working part-time as Internal Communications Executive for Dimensions UK and as a Research Assistant at the University of Manchester with a project on ‘first generation’ PhD student experiences. I’ve just completed a five-year stint at Manchester Cathedral, supporting the Development Project and the arts and heritage offers. I am studying part-time for a PhD in medieval literature, working on the conceptualisation of disinheritance and disinherited heirs in the genre of Middle English romance.

Please feel free to get in touch!
