Maura is an undergraduate student at Homerton College, Cambridge. She is currently in her second year reading for a BA in Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic, and is catering officer for her course society. When not studying for her degree, Maura is somewhat addicted to international current affairs, particularly with regard to energy policy and the search for renewable sources. She also takes a keen interest in women’s and LGBT rights, and in the protection and recovery of historical artifacts in volatile regions, unsurprising given her choice of degree. She has previously blogged for The Nation magazine concerning political developments in her native Great Britain.
