Heather used to work as a teacher in an international school and after completing her MA in Environmental Management, she realized that there was a gap in the recruitment market for highly skilled graduates from science, mathematics and technological disciplines. At the same time the graduates from environmental and development studies were finding it hard to find employment beyond the non-profit sector and the companies that started developing new ideas utilising science for sustainable development were growing in large numbers.
Andy was awarded his PhD in 2004 on ‘Multisensory Perception’ from Trinity College, Dublin. He then worked in several laboratories, exploring face perception, early-stage detection of glaucoma, and multisensory food perception. Subsequently, he worked in industry for several years in the Netherlands (for Unilever). Andy's spent the last 10 years developing software for conducting psychological research online and writing a variety of apps for science. In his spare time, Andy’s a keen runner, winning the Donegal Marathon in 2010. He also attends the occasional hackathon.
