M.Phil. in Greek and Roman History, Wadham College, University of Oxford
B.A. (Honours) in Literae Humaniores (Classics), Wadham College, University of Oxford

United Kingdom | Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, Ph.D. in Ancient History

Supratik is fascinated by the intersections of Greco-Roman, Near Eastern and Indian history. In recent years, he has been thinking about the understudied Arsakid Empire, which dominated the Near East from around 247 B.C. to A.D. 224. Through his doctoral work he aims to demonstrate that the Arsakid state should be understood as both Hellenistic and Near Eastern and therefore hopes to challenge the traditional division between ‘Classics’ and ‘Oriental Studies'.

Sophie Coulson

Sophie Coulson

M.E.Sci. (Honours) in Geophysics (North America), University of Liverpool

United Kingdom | Graduate School of Arts and Science, Department of Earth and Planetary Science, Ph.D. in Geodynamics

Sophie uses theoretical predictions and numerical modeling to develop an understanding of the elastic and anelastic properties of the Earth. Her work involves modeling the mantle’s response to external forcings, such as glacial cycles, tectonic motion and orbital dynamics. She hopes this research in Harvard’s Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences will lead to a career in academic research.

Diploma in History of Medicine, Worshipful Society of Apothecaries of London   

United Kingdom | Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health, MPH

Working as a doctor in the UK’s NHS, Nathan was struck by the way healthcare provision intersects with family and intimate relationships. These intersections have implications for sexual health and reproductive care, for mental health and emotional development, and for consent and post-mortem care. At Harvard University Nathan will be studying public health, construing ‘the public’ as both a collection of individuals and a collection of relationships.
