Laura graduated from Loughborough University with a First Class BSc in Computer Science And Mathematics in 2017. She now continues her education at Loughborough with a PhD in Theoretical Computer Science, which she began in October 2017. Laura’s research focuses on compacting the representation of words by means of Parikh matrices, representations that gives information about the order in which letters in that word appear, and the reduction of their ambiguity. In her spare time Laura is a highly active member of Loughborough Students Archery Club, having won BUCS points for the University on multiple occasions.
