Outside of office hours, the Junior Deans oversee non-academic student discipline, and provide welfare support to students.
“Hi, I’m Alex. I’m a final-year DPhil student in the Materials Department, where I work on developing new electron microscopy and spectroscopy techniques for bio applications. I’ve lived in Oxford for four years, and I’m really happy to be starting my third year as a Junior Dean at Somerville. I’m usually found somewhere in a 200-meter radius between Somerville, my lab, and the pub, and I’m always happy to chat over a coffee.”
