Education: Rachael graduated with a degree in Geography from the University of Oxford in 2016, with particular interests in international geopolitics and the environment. She enjoyed researching for her dissertation, focussing on the gamification of public spaces and the influence of sports fitness technologies on their users.

Personal: Rachael had a busy university life, and is a keen badminton player – balancing her studies with being a University Varsity Captain in both her second and final years. She played at county level for the Oxfordshire Senior Team and competed for the Yorkshire 1st team between the ages of U15-U21. Rachael recently spent time in Norway kayaking across the fjords and frequently travels back to Sheffield to hike in the Peak District where she grew up.
