MA, DPhil
Hugh Price Fellow of Jesus College, Director of the Oxford Learning Institute and Director of the Oxford University Language Centre

Academic and Professional Background

I am both Director of the Oxford Learning Institute and Director of the Oxford University Language Centre and have held these posts since 2016.

My association with Jesus College began in 2003, when I joined the College as its first full-time Senior Tutor (which also incorporated the roles of Tutor for Admissions and Tutor for Graduates) and Official Fellow. I was elected a Hugh Price Fellow when I left that post in 2009 to become the University's Director of Graduate Admissions and Funding (until 2016).

I read Classics as an undergraduate at Corpus Christi College, Oxford, followed by a DPhil in Ancient History. I then lectured in Classics and Ancient History at Royal Holloway, University of London, and worked as a research assistant, before joining Oxford's University Administration and Services. I held a variety of posts, and was Deputy Head of Planning before joining the College as Senior Tutor in 2003.

I am a Foundation Governor of the Schools of King Edward VI in Birmingham and also Governor of the Independent Schools of the Foundation. I chair a network of senior European university managers, within the Heads of University Management & Administration Network in Europe (HUMANE).
