Welcome to our newest Senior Members

We are delighted to announce the Governing Body Fellow and By-Fellows joining Hughes Hall’s academic community, and strengthening our tutorial provision.

The senior membership of Hughes Hall comprises a broad range of professional academics, from early career researchers developing their research profiles to established professors directing world-class research, as well as professionals from non-academic backgrounds.

Welcome to our newest senior members, anticlockwise from top left: Maria Gloag, Harro von Asselt, Yi Wei and Aude Rauscent.

Professor Harro van Asselt

Professor Harro van Asselt holds the Hatton Professorship in Climate Law at the University of Cambridge, and is a Governing Body Fellow at Hughes.

He is also a Professor of Climate Law and Policy at the University of Eastern Finland Law School, and an Affiliated Researcher with the Stockholm Environment Institute. He is the Editor-in-Chief of the Review of European, Comparative & International Environmental Law.

Harro has held visiting research or teaching positions including at Utrecht University, the University of Georgia, the University of Strathclyde, Bar-Ilan University, the Tokyo Institute of Technology, and the Finnish Institute for International Affairs. He is a Senior Research Fellow with the Earth System Governance project and a member of the IUCN World Commission on Environmental Law, a member of Climate Strategies.

Harro has published extensively in the field of climate change law and policy, covering developments in international, European, and national climate law and governance.

Professor van Asselt has contributed to high-level reports informing policymakers, such as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Sixth Assessment Report and the Emissions Gap and Production Gap reports (both supported by the UN Environment Programme).

Maria Gloag

Maria Gloag joins Hughes Hall as a By-Fellow and Tutor.

Maria previously worked as College Nurse following a diverse career in nursing and now works as a freelance wellbeing advisor and is delighted to return to Hughes Hall as a tutor, providing pastoral support to students.

She is passionate about promoting good mental wellbeing amongst the whole Hughes Hall community and is particularly interested in supporting disabled students and those experiencing mental health difficulties.

Maria has a BSc in Biomedical Sciences, qualifying as a nurse in 2000. Maria later undertook a MSc in Healthcare studies, researching the psychological and social issues around the incorrect use of medication by patients.

Dr Aude Rauscent

Dr Aude Rauscent joins us as a By-Fellow and Director of Studies in Psychological and Behavioural Sciences, and Natural Sciences.

Aude is a visiting research fellow at the Department of Psychology of the University of Cambridge where she continues her research on the neurological and psychological mechanisms subserving individual vulnerability to addiction in the CLIC Laboratory for research on Impulsive and Compulsive disorders.

Aude has extensive experience in undergraduate teaching and pastoral care and strongly believes that academic life at Cambridge University is more than “only” the teaching experience, so has become not only a Tutor at Hughes Hall but will also act as one of the Harassment support tutors.

Yi Wei

Yi Wei is a By-Fellow and College Teaching Assistant for Economics.

Yi is the also Teaching Assistant for Economics at Lucy Cavendish College and St Edmund’s Colleges and is responsible for supervisions for the three colleges as well as assisting Director of Studies works.

Yi studied Economics as an undergraduate at UCL where she became interested in game theory and continued her study in Cambridge. After finishing her Master’s degree, she started her research in dynamic oligopolistic competition models during her PhD in Cambridge.

She is now in her final year of PhD. Her primary research interests relate to microeconomics theory, dynamic games, oligopolistic competitions and uncertain demands.

Four of our former By-Fellows have moved to the Affiliate category: Nicola Moretti, Amita Ummadisingu, Lucrezia Nava and Anna-Joy Rickard.

The College’s Governing Body has overall responsibility for the College and is the committee of trustees for the College as a charity and is made up of a core group of more than 50 Fellows working in support of the College purpose. The broader senior membership is comprised of Honorary, Life, and Quondam Fellows, as well as By-Fellows, Research By-Fellows, and Visiting Fellows.

Senior Members of all categories, with individual profiles, are listed on the senior members pages.
