Abby Asomani, Master of Information Management
After graduating, I spent a year in Canada working with a public health start-up that leverages data to predict the spread of infectious diseases. The company was one of the first to identify the emerging risk from COVID-19. My degree allowed me to enhance my career with overseas experience, and gave me the expertise and confidence to contribute in a diverse, multidisciplinary and forward-thinking environment.

In this episode of The Future Of, digital anthropologist Dr Crystal Abidin discusses the rise and fall of both ‘deliberate’ and ‘accidental’ online celebrities.
