Anna Maria Barry
I was attracted to Brookes by the OBERTO Opera Research Unit. I felt this was the perfect environment for my work, as interdisciplinary research like mine is very well supported. I was also extremely keen to work with my supervisor, Dr Alexandra Wilson, as my work has many connections to her own.
I have a great interest in disseminating my research to wider audiences. OBERTO really appealed from this perspective, as its staff have an excellent record with public engagement. I have been really supported in this aspect of my career, and now write regularly for popular magazines and am curating an exhibition based on my research.
