Alumni Services

April 2013 | Alumni Profiles

We have gone NASA mad this month with an astronaut who has worked on the International Space Station and a project engineer who has lived underwater. We also feature a duo of award winners and a corporate lawyer who made the most of her time in Scotland.

We are interested in the role that the University has played in your life, either directly - in terms of skills and knowledge - or indirectly, via friends, experiences or chance encounters.

Please get in touch and you and your experiences could feature on our website.

Andrew Abercromby, deputy project manager and project engineer at NASA, chats about pulling pints in the Festival Theatre, learning to fly and living underwater.

Alex Healing, Edinburgh graduate and Young IT Professional of the Year, talks about why the University and the city lived up to their reputation, his work with BT and why you should never miss an opportunity to gain new experience.

Patricia Hiddleston has spent her professional life working in education and has been honoured by the Institute of Mathematics for services to maths education.

Astronaut and ecologist Piers Sellers tells us about why he decided on Edinburgh and the best things about working for NASA.

Corporate lawyer Ariel White-Tsimikalis talks about her favourite subject, meeting some of her closest friends and why you should make the most of the city and see as much as you can.
