Dr Andrew Rudd


I was born and brought up in Essex and attended King Edward VI Grammar School in Chelmsford. I studied for my undergraduate degree (BA English Class I) at the University of Durham. At Trinity College, Cambridge I obtained an MPhil in English (distinction) and a PhD in English (obtained in 2005). For several years, I worked outside academia, most recently as Parliamentary Manager at the Charity Commission for England and Wales. I was appointed Lecturer in English at the University of Exeter in 2013, and promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2018.
