I’m a final year Human Geographer at the University of Leeds, and a certified ‘map-geek’. I have experience working in the public sector in Leeds as a researcher for Migrant Action. I love the city of Leeds and spend most of my time either walking down the Leeds-Liverpool Canal, or Call Lane.
At University, I’m interested in how to analyse and visualise social data, so to enhance understanding of social processes and to inform social policy. I’m aspiring to pursue a career in social data science and in the public sector.
As part of my placement with the East Leeds Project, I’m excited to deploy my social data skills to analyse and map the landscape of creative activity and spaces across Leeds. This work will help connect and embed the development of East Leeds Pavilion with creative networks and other ‘makerspaces’ in the surrounding area.
I am a third year physical geography student. Urban sustainability is one of my main interests, so I’m grateful for the opportunity to explore this through the East Leeds Project. I am excited to utilise my sustainability knowledge to make a positive impact on the communities living East of Leeds by ensuring environmental sustainability is an integral part of the makerspace while also being suited to the people it will benefit.
