I divided my childhood between Berkshire, Shropshire and London. I was fascinated by Science from a young age, especially when it came to space. Later in life, I realised I was better suited to writing than I was to experiments.
I studied Linguistics at The University of Gloucestershire, where I earned a BA (First-Class). After that, I studied New Political Communication at Royal Holloway, University of London, earning a MSc (Distinction). I remained at RHUL and joined the New Political Communication Unit as a doctoral researcher in September 2014 to undertake my PhD.
I have worked in learning support at three different educational establishments, as a teaching assistant at in the Politics and International Relations Department at Royal Holloway, University and London since 2015, and as a research assistant for multiple peer-reviewed publications in leading journals.
In my non-professional life I like to hike, watch films, and see live music.
