About Me

I’m an undergraduate student at the University of Oxford, reading for a BA in Human Sciences. After graduating, I want to study climate change in a political context with a view to pursuing a career in journalism.

I am currently working as a News Editor at Cherwell, the independent student newspaper of the University of Oxford. My first term at the paper was dominated by reporting on the development of a vaccine against COVID-19 by AstraZeneca and Oxford University.

Aside from science, I write about environmental issues, both British and international politics, culture, and identity. I write about autism from an autistic perspective, which led to my article “Like Greta Thunberg, I am on the autism spectrum. She gives me hope” being published in The Guardian. I have also been featured on Connecticut Public Radio and interviewed for the New York Times to discuss neurodiversity and the importance of authentic media representation.

Outside of my life as a student and journalist, I enjoy reading and hiking. I am also a musician, playing both the flute and French horn.
