Previous to this I have dabbled at Universities in Art (London Central Saint Martins), Genetics (UCL), Science-Teaching (Canterbury Christchurch), Environmental Anthropology (University of Kent). I can be an activist also, having helping leading DisarmUCL to victory, spearheaded the successful SaveChaucerFields Campaign and counter-hosted Goldsmiths and CSM Art Shows.
My own favourite skills though are being able to find any turtle nest in record time, having a thick Turkish Cypriot accent when I speak Turkish, asking annoying but relevant questions to a speaker in almost any subject, and general tech bod.
