We’re pleased to introduce the 10 doctoral students from universities across the UK who have joined us as the 10th cohort of the Cumberland Lodge Fellowship.
From social enterprise development in Kenya to human rights in Myanmar, as well as gravitational wave astronomy, British foreign policy, and public health systems, their individual PhD research spans a broad range of themes.
Together, they share the common goal of the Fellowship – working with us, over a two-year period, to tackle the causes and effects of social division.
We selected nine Fellows through a competitive application process, and the Council for At-Risk Academics (Cara) nominated the 10th.
Over the next two years, they will play an active role in our conferences, events, and programme activities. They will also help us produce podcasts, host webinars, and write for us.
Our 2023-25 Cumberland Lodge Fellows are:
- Claire Agius (Manchester Metropolitan University)
- Favour Borokini (University of Nottingham)
- Mattia Emma (Royal Holloway, University of London)
- Sali Hafez (London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine)
- Caroline Onyuka (Edge Hill University)
- Zoe Strong (University of Aberdeen)
- Cee Swakamisa (University of Leeds)
- Khin Thet San (Goldsmiths, University of London)
- Samuel Wairimu (University of Greenwich)
- Rong Wei (University of Birmingham)
They met for the first time at the annual Fellows’ Retreat which took place from 8-10 September here at the Lodge.
