My name is Amy Mcleod and I now work at ThoughtWorks as a Graduate Business Analyst.
Before this I completed an MSc in Social Science of the Internet at the Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford. I am interested in the ways in which technology can be used to improve the way we do things. During this time I concentrated on how technology is used to support learning in both formal and informal settings and remain very interested in theories of how people learn and how change happens.
I have a background in journalism and website production. At the University of Warwick I developed a website to communicate the university’s research to a wider audience. At the BBC I did research and development for several teams in both the science and current affairs departments. At that time I was particularly intersted by how BBC iPlayer and social media were changing working practices.
I graduated in 2008 with a BA in Politics, Philosophy and Economics also from the University of Oxford.
