Ever wondered who the people are that have been bombarding you with emails? They will be your point of contact during the upcoming academic year, so we thought we should briefly introduce them to you:


Peter Campbell is the Department Manager. If you’re not a native English speaker, you might get confused about whether he’s British or Australian. We’ll let you discover this for yourselves.




Dru Nelson is the Deputy Department Manager. She likes all things craft related and is currently renewing her love of dressmaking. Dru looks forward to meeting all of you and hopes to get to know most of you throughout your time here.



Roxane Ray is the Course Coordinator of the MSc Development Management programme. She’s a travel aficionado and has lived a year in Spain to learn Spanish. You can contact her on R.Ray2@lse.ac.uk.



Katharine Adnitt coordinates the MSc Development Studies and the MSc African Development programmes. She likes trying out different cuisines from all over the world and will just have come back from a trip to Hong Kong and Vietnam when you start your year at the LSE. You can contact her on: K.Adnitt@lse.ac.uk.



Maria Do-Prado is the Course Coordinator for the MSc International Humanitarian Emergencies and the MSc Health and International Development programme. Speaking Brazilian Portuguese as her mother tongue, she contributes to a South American ambience in our office. You can contact her on M.A.Do-Prado@lse.ac.uk.



Dipa Patel is our overall talent with everything relating to the website, communications and events. She has lived in five different countries across three continents and is curious about finding out more about our new cohort of students’ diverse backgrounds. You can contact her on D.Patel20@lse.ac.uk.



Sarah Neuenschwander has recently joined the team and will be working as the Student Experience Officer. She is a language enthusiast and is currently trying to pick up Arabic. You can contact her on S.M.Neuenschwander@lse.ac.uk.



We wish you all a successful start of your year here at the ID Department and look forward to meeting you soon in person!
