Testimonials

MML provided a lively research environment, both in the well frequented Graduate centre and in the various student-led graduate seminars and conferences. My supervision was both extremely rigorous but also empathetic and supportive. Between the University library, MML and the college libraries the range and amount of research materials available was invaluable for my thesis. Since completing my thesis, I am currently teaching at the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon, an opportunity organised by the department to spend time gaining experience in research and teaching abroad.
