Lucy started off as editor for the Asia section of Exploration in 2010, when the project was in its infancy, and was offered the role of Editor-in-Chief in 2011. From then until stepping down in September 2015, she oversaw Exploration through thick and thin, and helped to create the new website in 2014 — with only a few extremely minor shouting-at-the-computer-screen-in-frustration episodes. Lucy graduated from the University of Birmingham with an MA in English Literature there in 2014. In her spare time, she can be found writing in various forms (both academically and for pleasure), reading, thinking about things a little bit too much, or else reliving her various travel experiences in Asia, America, Europe and Oceania to her rather bored friends and family. She is currently pursing her PhD in English Literature at the University of Leeds.
