Rebecca Heath (shown above on the GR20 in Corsica) tries to do as much photography as she can between studying, and enjoys taking photographs of university events and her travels. She is currently in the third year of her PhD at Cambridge University, and is employed at St John’s College as a Teaching Associate.

After graduating from King’s College, Cambridge with an Economics degree in 2019, she undertook an MPhil in Economic Research at Churchill College, Cambridge and was awarded the Møller Masters Scholarship.

In October 2020, Rebecca commenced her PhD studies at Cambridge, as part of the Microeconomic Theory Research Group. She is undertaking research involving the mathematical analysis and modelling of online behaviour on social networks. Rebecca has been awarded the Møller PhD Scholarship and the Vice-Chancellor’s Award, which is awarded to the 250 highest-ranked students across the University.

Rebecca has supervised undergraduate economics students at St John’s, King’s, Fitzwilliam, Corpus Christi, Homerton and Robinson Colleges. In October 2021, Rebecca became a College Teaching Associate at St John’s College, Cambridge.

In October 2022, Rebecca was awarded the Jim Perkins Ph.D Travelling Scholarship. She travelled to Australia in March 2023 to undertake research at the University of Melbourne and will return to Cambridge in November 2023.

In March 2023, Rebecca was nominated for a Student-Led Teaching Award at Cambridge University. She was shortlisted by the panel of judges. According to the University, these awards represent a unique opportunity for students themselves not only to recognise the exceptional contribution of individual staff members to their education at Cambridge, but also to highlight the kinds of teaching and support that students value.
