PhD Candidate Neuroscience, University of Cambridge - Lena is a PhD student in Neuroscience at the Department of Psychiatry, University of Cambridge. Born in Germany, she has studied, volunteered and worked in many countries, including Honduras, India, Burma, Egypt and England. After completing her undergraduate degree focusing on Machine Learning and Neuroscience, Lena now researches depression development during adolescence using a variety of multivariate methods for the analysis of magnetic resonance imaging scans - using computer science techniques for brain research. She is particularly interested in understanding why during adolescence girls are so much more likely to develop depression than boys.
Dr Kieron W
DPhil English Literature, University of Oxford - Kieron is currently a freelance poet and teacher, specialising in creative writing. His first collection of poetry, The Mortal Man, was published in 2015. He was the first poet in residence at Rydal Mount since Wordsworth, and the first poet in many years to read from his own work at Dove Cottage, Wordsworth's home. He's also been Artist in Residence at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford.
Dr Amanda H
DPhil Chaucer's Poetics, University of Oxford - Amanda specialises in Medieval English literature and the English language. Her first book was on Chaucer's poetics; she edited Tottel's Miscellany, and worked on a book and database on rhyme in medieval and sixteenth century love lyric. She's currently working on a new book about anthologies of ‘English verse’ and the fantasies of England they project. It picks up on her longstanding interests in poetry anthologies and the agendas which drive the critical framing of texts and uses them to explore an area which is particularly topical given the ongoing debates around Brexit and the drive for Scottish independence.
