Olivia joined Wavehill in 2021 following the completion of her BA Human Geography degree and Social Research master’s degree at the University of Leeds. As part of her postgraduate degree Olivia took part in an Applied Project, working with Leeds City College to analyse the impacts of COVID-19 on staff and students in Further Education. This provided valuable experience of carrying out research, developing a set of recommendations and presenting back to an outside organisation.
Olivia is skilled in both qualitative and quantitative forms of research with experience of carrying out online and telephone interviews, as well as experience of conducting data analysis, using programs such as SPSS, MapInfo and R Studio.
Since joining Wavehill, Olivia has worked on several projects related to heritage, culture and community.
