Whilst both studying at and working for my alma mater, I have been heavily involved in a vast range of varied activities. During my time as a student many of these overlapped with the Lancaster University Students’ Union, but equally many have been with the university itself.
Throughout my studies I was a regular participant in various departments’ research projects, such as working as an RA for the Lancaster University Management School (LUMS). I also took part in a number of schemes within the School of Computing & Communications (SCC), such as Student Ambassador and Code Club.
I also took part in the Lancaster Award scheme throughout my undergraduate studies, as well as being heavily involved in my college.

Finally (for now) I returned once again between 2019-–21 working on a Knowledge Transfer Project (KTP) between me, the university and a local information security company. I used this opportunity to audit additional university modules to add to my skillset, amongst other training and development activities, and I returned to my former undergraduate college.
