ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership for Social Sciences


Meet your new Cambridge ESRC DTP Student Reps


Student Rep (Jake)


My name is Jake and I am a first year PhD student working in the Institute of Criminology. My research focuses on children who are looked after by the state and who may be returning to birth parents. I have  previously been both course and department rep at the University of York. I am also the current MCR president of Downing College. I am passionate about ensuring that our voice does not get lost. If you would like to meet with me please email



Student Rep (Amarpreet)


Amarpreet is a 2nd year PhD student in the Department of Sociology. Her research is focused on genetic editing via human embryos in the UK and what this reveals about people’s attitudes towards disease and reproduction. Amarpreet is part of the DTP’s Emerging Technologies, Human Behaviour, and Productivity Cluster and is delighted to be one of your student representatives. You can contact Amarpreet via email (ak997) or her Twitter @lioness1992.
