Dr Freddie Stephenson

Dr Freddie Stephenson graduated with a PhD in Modern History in 2020.

"My research, which focused on the cultural history of health under British imperialism in colonial China, benefitted greatly from the interdisciplinary environment and international connections available at the University of Nottingham. 

My doctoral studies led to significant archival fieldwork and formal academic Fellowships in both Hong Kong and Shanghai, the two locations that was explicitly researching.

All of this would not have been possible without the support of my erudite supervisors, who tirelessly supported me in writing many (thankfully successful!) scholarship, grant, and award applications.

I currently work as a Senior Management Consultant where I specialise in delivering major programmes with clients across the UK public sector. In practice, this means providing expertise, advice, and leadership to ensure better outcomes for government initiatives by supporting civil servants and policy professionals.

I consider my PhD to be an important competitive differentiator that enabled me to quickly progress through the ranks and earn recognition through the leading professional bodies in the field. This is because of the broad skillset that a PhD both necessitates and cultivates, a skillset which was an excellent fit for management consulting due to the shared analytical, managerial, and pedagogic elements."
