I am currently the intelligence guardian at StudyPortals. In my role as the Head of the Intelligence team, I gather valuable knowledge about the students visiting StudyPortals websites, their background, interests and motivations and keep track of trends in internationalization and student mobility.
I am curious about marketing, communication, and data analytics. I have a background in international communications management, public relations, marketing and research and a PhD in value cocreation. My interests mostly lie in understanding how people think, feel and behave, what data can tell us about consumer behavior and attitudes, and generally how the economy works. I also like to teach and coach, create and deliver presentations and generally talk to people who have similar ideas. I also enjoy rock climbing, blogging, and lindy-hop.
I set out this blog as a way of keeping track of some of the ideas I come along, and of making my own work more widely accessible. For my fashion-oriented blog, you can have a look at Alpha Women Rule.
Some longer term plans involve:
* climb hard
* give a TED talk
* travel the world.
If you want to say hello, you can always email me at email@example.com.
