What are you doing now?
Following my PhD graduation, I stayed in Edinburgh for a year working for a bio-tech start up. When I decided to move to the Alps, I stayed in the job and commuted once a month to Scotland until I got a job locally at a semi-conductor manufacturing company. There I led a team of offshore developers building software for wafer verification.
While in Austria I also ran training courses for young women to encourage their interest in studying IT. In 2010 I moved to Adelaide, Australia and started working for Accenture Digital, developing marketing analytics software. As a technical lead I now deliver cutting edge data science products to some of the biggest companies in the world. In my spare time I volunteer at my children’s school teaching basic robotics and programming, or run in the national park behind my house where there are always plenty of kangaroos, koalas and snakes.
