Kennedy Scholars 2013
Jasdeep_Bains_edited-1Jasdeep Bains  23  

Special Student, Harvard GSAS

Jasdeep will be studying in Harvard’s theoretical physics group in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and welcomes the opportunity to also take courses from the Graduate School of Education.  After beginning his studies at Imperial College, he has recently completed an MSci in Theoretical Physics and Applied Mathematics at the University of Birmingham, where he was in receipt of an Ambassador Excellence Scholarship and also won a fully-funded research internship at the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron in Hamburg.  Prior to leaving for Harvard Jasdeep will be on a DAAD scholarship in Berlin where he will work in the theoretical physics group led by a former collaborator of the late Nobel Prize-winning American, Richard Feynman.  Jasdeep looks forward to a career in theoretical physics but also maintains a very strong interest in politics. Having been an active educator for many years now, he is keen to investigate the creation of a national organisation aimed at inspiring children with the beauty of science.  Jasdeep also has a particular interest in the differences between UK and US educational systems and has already forged links with a school in Massachusetts. His own underprivileged education has spurred his interest in this area.   Aside from his academic pursuits, Jasdeep is a keen sportsman, practicing both basketball and “cage fighting”, or Mixed Martial Arts, and is looking forward to developing his skills in a country where both of these sports feature prominently.

Harvard Neuroscience PhD

Alexandra has just completed a Natural Sciences degree at Clare College, Cambridge and will be starting the Neuroscience doctoral programme at Harvard.   She became interested in studying in the US after spending summer 2012 as Clare’s Watson Scholar at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, New York, where she did research on the role of the orbitofrontal cortex in decision-making.  The main appeal of an American PhD was the opportunity to spend a few months working in several different labs, exploring different areas of neuroscience and discovering an important thesis question.  Harvard was particularly appealing due to the large number of scientists working in Alex’s chosen specialism of systems neuroscience and investigating the neural basis of certain behaviours.  She’ll also enjoy collaborating with the many other neuroscience PhD students there.  At Cambridge, Alex has been involved in Clare Access, encouraging young people to apply to Cambridge regardless of their background and teaching sixth-formers university-level neuroscience.  She also sang in several productions and was an Associate Editor for The Science in Society Review.  She hopes to continue these activities at Harvard while gaining skills that will enable to run her own lab in the future.  

Izzy_Boggild-Jones_(3)_edited-1Isabel Boggild-Jones  23

Harvard GSAS Special Student

Having graduated in Philosophy, Politics & Economics, Izzy has spent the past two years teaching English and Politics in a south London secondary school with Teach First. Whilst at Oxford, she was involved in student journalism as a reporter and editor and hosted a radio show on student politics. A summer of media work placements convinced her that such indirect political involvement was not for her, and her particular interests in family policy and the study of educational disadvantage took her to Teach First. At Harvard, Izzy expects to further her study of education within the wider fields of social policy and feminist political theory and welcomes the breadth of opportunity provided to her as a Special Student.   She hopes to return to frontline involvement in British education policy.

Tom_Etheridge_1_edited-1Thomas Etheridge  24

Harvard Kennedy School MPP

Tom has worked at the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs since graduating from Oxford three years ago.   His particular interest during his study of Philosophy, Politics & Economics was the forces that shape human decision-making.   He found all three disciplines of his degree transferred well into the Civil Service Fast Stream roles supporting the dairy industry, tackling food waste and, most recently, in a Minister’s office.   Finding his commitment to public service strengthened, Tom now wishes to take the Masters in Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School to develop further the academic foundations he believes underpin sound public policy making.
