About me

 

I have just finished the Arts and Sciences BASc at UCL, a unique interdisciplinary degree. I am curious to move into the world of work in order to apply and develop my skills within a different framework. I am particularly interested in leadership, consultancy, branding, cross-sector collaboration, and forging a career with tangible social impact. My studies have focused on digital technologies in culture, innovative strategy, literature, and psychology. I am most proud of my dissertation, which - thanks to the intellectual freedom the BASc encouraged - took the form of a psychological exploration of time experience in a piece of literature.
