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.

The first of its kind in Britain, the BASc is an interdisciplinary degree program which requires students to forge their own innovative and unique pathways. My studies have focused on literature, psychology, digital culture and the future of museums. My dissertation was on Time Experience, and I have created projects on value judgements involved with choosing shoes, how to merge 3D models of visitor's heads in museums, and the ethicacy of digital repatriation.
