MPhil International Relations

Risk Manager, Mining and Metals Industry

"Currently working as Risk, Government and Community Relations Manager for the Mining business of ArcelorMittal, the world's largest steel company. It's a fascinating and varied role with a huge amount of stakeholder interaction in which my Cambridge Modern History and International Relations background often feels directly relevant! I'm based in London but regularly travelling to mine-sites around the world and dealing with complex topics as diverse as Ebola in Liberia, the civil war in Ukraine, terrorism in North Africa, organised crime in Mexico and indigenous relations in Arctic Canada. Seeing underground coal production in Kazakhstan at first hand has been especially memorable. I would love to hear from fellow M.Phil. alumni of the 1999-2000 class as well as anyone else with a similar role and/or also involved in the extractives industries."
