Alumni Services

March 2013 | Alumni Profiles

A splendid and diverse range of alumni this month. Can we tempt you with an ex-gladiator, an award winning photographer and a Barcelona based teacher training entrepreneur. I think we can.

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.

Olympian Shirley Addison chats about choosing Edinburgh over Oxford, representing Scotland and Great Britain at the Olympics and Commonwealth Games and starring as Gladiator 'Battleaxe' the Warrior Queen.

The University of Edinburgh's first ever Mathematics Engagement Officer Julia Collins talks to us about her role in the Edinburgh International Science Festival and the significance of Haggis the Sheep.

Barcelona based alumnus Richard Davie talks about finding your niche, late night Fresh Air radio shows and why you shouldn't necessarily tie yourself to a career related to your degree.

Photographer Anna Henly talks about the appeal of romantic, bonnie Scotland, her love of skiing and winning two BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year awards.

Alumna Sandra Wilson chats about student life, a chance encounter with a sporty scientist and how research skills gained at Edinburgh have been vital to her career.
