Zoë did her PhD at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Before that, she completed the UK's "Teach First" programme, earning a teaching degree and working full-time for two years at a secondary school in South-East London. Before Teach First, she did a BA and M.Phil in Philosophy at the University of Cambridge. Zoë has been to all of the 48 contiguous U.S. states, knows how to DJ on CD decks and to do old-school darkroom photography, used to play the drums, and once spent a very brief stint as a hair model. She is originally from Nottingham and may reveal her thick Midlands accent if you ask her very nicely.
