In a Nutshell with Annabelle Macleod, a 2nd year student in Computer Science at RGU

Developing my skills in various areas of Computing Science through the modules presented by the University.

What was your very first job?

I worked as a waitress in a Casino in Aberdeen during my first Degree some years ago.

How did you get into IT?

While on a career break from my previous qualification I started being more and more interested in data and data usage; at the same time I was looking for a different professional path so it seemed like a natural progression.

Interesting fact about you?

I love science! I was a Molecular Biologist in a previous life and it has taught me a way of thinking that applies to many other areas of my life and to computing too.

Because of my love of science I also was a volunteer docent at the Houston Museum of Natural Sciences when we lived there

Lotus elan S3

Who would you most like to meet and why?

Ben Silbermann (co-founder of Pinterest)

Current Aspirations?

I have a number of little projects on the back burner which I would love to develop over the next few years and of course finish my degree. I would love to get involved at the junction of healthcare and data science/management, especially when it comes to the use of wearables to gather useful data.
