Know Your Arekibian: Louise
Next up on our Know Your Arekibian series is Louise Egan, who joined our team in January as a Digital Project Manager. Louise likes Ancient Greece and Roman history and going to concerts!
What was your journey to Arekibo?
I did an MSc in International Heritage Visualisation at the Glasgow School of Art which gave me a good foundation in Project Management and UX, as well as some interesting technologies such a laser scanning, 3D modelling, photogrammetry and game design. In the years that followed I built on those skills in the companies I worked for. What attracted me to Arekibo was their user centred approach and the variety of projects I could work one.
