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