Dr Fiona Gatty
I am both a Researcher and Implementer: I am currently the Co-PI for a project on Education, Purpose and Human Flourishing in Uncertain Times in the Comparative and International Research Centre of the Department of Education at Oxford University. I also work as an external consultant for Strategic Relationships and Partnerships at the Templeton World Charity Foundation Inc where I work closely with other foundations, INGOs, the Vatican and public policy organisations.
I have a multi-disciplinary background and experience. My research degree was in late 18th and early 19th-century French aesthetics, and prior to my return to academia ten years ago, I had a career in the international finance, entrepreneurial business and high net worth family business sectors, where I served at board level. I have published and taught on late eighteenth-and early nineteenth century art history and aesthetics. Drawing on my experience as Chapel Director at Somerville College, Oxford I have also published on religious education. I have a MA in Modern History (graduated 1984), MSt in History of Art and Visual Culture (graduated 2007), and DPhil in History of Art (graduated 2015), all from Somerville College, University of Oxford. I am also the mother of four young adult children.
