Daryl Pereira

In between lectures, I spent a lot of my time in the refectory on campus, and really loved meeting lots of new people from all over the world. This exposure, my multi-disciplinary studies and an interest in organisational behaviour helped me see that complex technical problems could often be solved by understanding both the people and process dimensions of that problem.
