What I study

PhD in European Studies at the European Institute


How I was involved with LSESU before becoming an officer

Departmental PhD student rep, Education Committee PhD rep 2019/20. Co-organised the LSESU Refugee Week 2018 during my MSc.


What I’m looking to achieve this year?

Making the LSE PhD experience more equitable and inclusive.


One tip for making the most out of LSE

Take time off. This might be even more crucial this year than before, but take time off – to spend it with friends, to eat, to sleep, to exercise, to explore London (once that’s possible and safe again).
