Working hours: Mondays to Fridays 9:00-12.30; 13.30-17.00

I joined the Department of History in March 2020, having previously worked in the Events Office at the University as part of the team that organise the Graduation ceremonies. I moved to Sheffield in September 2018 and I am still learning about all the great things this city has to offer!

I graduated with a BA in History from Cardiff University in 2013.

Outside of work, I enjoy travelling and support the (not so) famous Cardiff City.
