Dr Ruth Todd being presented her testamur by Dr Brenden Tempest-Mogg

Ruth  Todd’s book Econoracism: The Next Great Divide was the result of her years of researching for her PhD. Prevously, she had had a distinctive career working in the nuclear power industry and in cyber security.  For over forty years, she did a lot of international travel.  Later, having gained her first degree as a mature student, she took a PhD in The History of Ideas, with Warnborough College Ireland.  Having gained a global perspective, she decided that her research would examine the division between rich and world in various parts of the world.  She found common patterns in different geographical areas.

Ruth took the time to talk to us about her  life and her experience of studying for her PhD
