Meet the Staff

GEO in London has a small and friendly staff. Get to know them a bit better here:

  • Amanda Milburn – Director
  • Mary Hiles – Assistant Director (Acting Director, January to June 2020)
  • Kalyn Franke – Programmes and Housing Coordinator (Acting Assistant Director, January to June 2020)
  • Iain Espey – Programmes Assistant


Previous staff:

  • Andreas Eriksen – Andreas was our summer assistant three years running. He’s now working for a tech firm in Seattle.
  • Susie Thomas – Susie still teaches for GEO, but decided to step down as director in May 2016 in order to focus on her writing.
  • Maggie Kovacevic – Maggie left GEO early in 2016 after nearly 30 years as Housing Coordinator. She is set to travel the world with her husband, and spend more time with her new granddaughter.
  • Martin Upham – Martin stepped down as director in 2014 after 10 years at the helm. He refuses to say he’s retired, as he’s probably never been busier: writing a book, singing in several London choirs and rekindling his love of politics.
