Joanna HodnettJoanna Hodnett

(Christ Church)

Gather with us! Who knows what may blossom from our local Oxonian connections? Friendships, uncovering new things, lending a hand to the next generation? I am a primary school teacher working in Bristol, having read PGCE (2011) and MSc in education (2021). Before my teaching career, I worked in marketing and alumni relations.



Ana Castro-CastellonDr Ana T. Castro-Castellon

(Lady Margaret Hall)

I hold a PhD in Chemical and Environmental Engineering (2017) from the U. of Oxford and an MSc in Aquatic Ecology and Ecosystems Change (U. of Bristol). Water: quality, treatment, and ecology have driven my career in the water industry and academia. I like to keep active: as a Researcher, a committee member of the Royal Society of Chemistry-Water Science Forum, a reviewer for peer-reviewed journals and a beginner in creative writing (in Spanish). My aim is to strengthen our connections and continue building on my predecessor's footsteps.


Currently vacant.

Virginia KnightDr Virginia Knight

(Merton College)

I read Classics at Oxford before doing a PhD in Greek Literature at Cambridge. I later held posts supporting academic computer use at the universities of Cambridge, Manchester, Bath and (for 15 years) Bristol. I have a particular interest in digital humanities, and research data management; however my current day job is producing web applications with an engineering focus.  I'm also active on the local choral scene. My aim is to continue the excellent work of my predecessor Alex Zhurakovskyi and maintain a website that will be a benchmark for other alumni societies.
