I studied Philosophy, Politics and Economics at the University of Warwick before coming to Cambridge to study for an MPhil in Philosophy. I am interested in political and feminist philosophy. During my master's degree, I have written about climate change duties, social housing and the implications of hate speech for equal citizenship.
My doctoral research engages with the phenomenon of menstrual shame. I offer a philosophical analysis of the connection between gender and shame, and argue that menstrual shaming is a distinct injustice. I also look at the potential of menstrual tracking apps for empowering women.
I am incredibly grateful for the support a Gates Cambridge Scholarship offers me - from the opportunity to conduct research with fantastic academics and peers, to the opportunity to connect with a network of scholars who have years of experience in making the world a better place for everyone.
