I arrived at Exeter in 2011 as an undergraduate and studied Flexible Combined Honours Anthropology and Geography. In the summer of 2014 I graduated with First Class Honours. Following this I was granted a 3+1 studentship by the South West Doctoral Training Centre in Health and Wellbeing, based across the universities of Bath, Bristol and Exeter. Having graduated from the MRes, I am currently co-teaching the module 'Addiction' at the University of Exeter alongside Dr. Hannah Farrimond, whilst studying for my PhD (see research).
