Fellow for Admissions and Access and Supernumerary Fellow in Physiology

I have greatly enjoyed working in higher education for the last 20 years. In my current position as Supernumerary Fellow and Tutor in Physiology for St John’s, I have am involved in many aspects of College life including those that relate to the students directly (teaching, welfare, discipline, presidential collections, admissions, schools liaison), and those that contribute to the effective running of the college (various committees, interviewing for JRF, alumni interactions admissions, and as Dean for Degrees). I am currently the lead tutor in Biomedical sciences, and I have a substantial role as a Medical tutor. I also contribute to the teaching of the Experimental Psychology students.

I am responsible for management of the various strands of the Inspire Programme in the boroughs of Ealing and Harrow. Originally from the North East of England, I have an undergraduate degree in History and a Master’s degree in US History from University College, Oxford, and have a number of years’ experience in the field of widening access to higher education. I have previously worked on a number of access projects with Pembroke College, Oxford, and more recently have been involved in the development and implementation of Oxford’s regional outreach policy, with a particular focus on areas of social, economic and educational disadvantage in the North East and North West of England.
