This series introduces us to a different employee every week. Find out what they most enjoy about their job and learn things you might not know about them yet. This week: Annabel Murphy, associate at the Living Case Lab.

What do you like most about your job?

I like that I can connect and talk to people within and without the university. I’m often in roles where I am a connector, an introducer. That suits me well as I am genuinely curious about what people are doing and why. Also, as an Australian living in the Netherlands, it’s great to work for a well-known institute like the UvA. My mother - who is an academic - is a little jealous, I think. 

Is there a project or research from this past year you are particularly proud of?

I joined the team last October to help bring the Amsterdam Living Case Lab to life. We are setting up pilots to bring industry together with staff and students at the Amsterdam Business School. We’re running a few of those simultaneously. With these we try find out the best ways to connect all stakeholders: students, staff and of course the companies.

What don’t most colleagues know about you?

I used to be a reporter on Sky Business News in Australia.
