I am a Research Project Coordinator and Co-PI at the Department of Education for a project on Education, Purpose and Human Flourishing in Times of Uncertainty (EPHF), and the Templeton World Charity Foundation Fellow in Comparative Education at St Antony’s College, Oxford.
I have a multi-disciplinary background and experience. Academically I am an Art Historian specialising in late 18th and early 19th-century French aesthetics, and prior to my return to academia I had a career in the international finance, entrepreneurial business and high net worth family business sectors. I have published and taught at the University of Oxford on late eighteenth-and early nineteenth century art, history and aesthetics. Drawing on my experience as Lay Chaplain at Somerville College, Oxford I have also published on religious education. In addition to my position in the Education Department I am the Principal Advisor for Strategic Relationships and Partnerships at the Templeton World Charity Foundation Inc where I work closely with other foundations, INGOs and public policy organisations.
