So what does your job actually involve? Tell us all about it
It’s my job to crunch all the data that the users of The Student Room produce. Things like what users are clicking on, what threads they’re reading, and how long they spend on the site. I then feed this data to other members of staff in the form of pretty graphs, so we can figure out what to do next and how to make the site even better. I'm also the broken spreadsheet fixer and vegan baked goods provider.
What's the most unique part of your role at The Student Room?
Working for a fast growing company, there are always new things to investigate. It’s exciting to be the first to discover new insights into our data. Maybe no-one has yet noticed that x correlates with y, and how valuable that knowledge is to the business.
What do you find most exciting about working in the student & youth market?
I find it rewarding to be able to play a small part in improving the lives of students. I wish I'd had something like The Student Room when I was at college!
If you could give your student self one piece of advice what would it be?
Stick with studying Computing (don’t give up just because you’re the only girl!) as it’ll come in very handy later in life. Plus - exercise more and watch less Deal or No Deal!
