Roddy provides support to the Edinburgh Futures Institute’s Education Team by coordinating, planning and reporting on the resources required to deliver the Institute’s interdisciplinary Postgraduate and Undergraduate taught programmes.
A tech and data nerd at heart, Roddy previously worked within the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures where he led on academic workload allocation modelling and the delivery, strategy and policies underpinning school timetabling.
Roddy obtained his PhD from the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures, writing his thesis on the “Narrativization of the Global Financial Crisis  by the Japanese Press”. As such, his research interests fall squarely within the remit of the Edinburgh Futures Institutes, particularly those of Narrative Futures.
Beyond work and study, Roddy is an avid gamer, coffee drinker, electronica listener and LEGO enthusiast, and will talk ad nauseam about any of these topics given half a chance.
