Continuing our series to introduce you to the creative individuals within OS and share the variety of work we do, meet Layla Gordon. As a Research Scientist, here she gives us a glimpse into her extremely varied role…
How long have you worked for OS?
14 years. I first joined as a research scientist to work in the remote sensing team in the research department. After 7 years of working within research, I was asked to join the technology labs team as a tech labs engineer. I also joined the mobile team on a secondment basis for 6 months in between research and tech labs transition.
How long have you been in your current role?
About a year ago the tech labs team merged with the CATS team, so I became a research scientist again!
Can you describe your working day?
I am often on Meshmixer/Blender as well as meshlab for editing and the creation of 3D objects. Also I have two weekly meetings to attend with PocketPals and I also help manage the backlogs and communicate with the team throughout the day.
