Your Graduate Representative

Nailya Shamgunova



Hi! My name is Nailya and I am your Graduate Representative. My job is to represent your views and concerns on a number of committees, covering issues from teaching and curriculum to gender balance and the Faculty building. I am also here to answer any questions you might have or help out with any issues (or point you to someone who can!).

I am a first year PhD student, working on Anglophone concepts of Ottoman sexual practices in the early modern era under the supervision of Dr William O'Reilly. I am a Cambridge veteran - I did both my BA and M.Phil degrees here - so I hope to be able to use all the random knowledge I accumulated to help out if you need me!
