Eleanor joined University Alliance in June 2020 to support the DTA team. She is responsible for the engagement of researchers (students, supervisors and alumni) participating in the DTA programme, and works closely with the Head of Programmes to develop, coordinate and deliver DTA training activities, as well as resources to support PGR wellbeing.

She has spent several periods studying and researching in Italy and Argentina, including as Pilkington Rome Awardee at the British School at Rome in 2018/19. During her PhD, Eleanor also held various teaching and student representative roles.
