Senior Consultant, Technology

With FTI being a global company in itself, having the opportunity to work closely with different segments both in London and around the world is incredibly rewarding, and has become embedded within our work especially during the pandemic.

After joining the Digital Forensics and Investigations team at FTI as a graduate, I was able to start my career in a challenging and fast-paced environment from the beginning.

My role allows me to be responsible for performing a multitude of forensic tasks and developing my skills, as well as being exposed to the many global companies FTI works with and advises.

With FTI being a global company in itself, having the opportunity to work closely with different segments both in London and around the world is incredibly rewarding, and has become embedded within our work especially during the pandemic.

Being a part of a team that we are focused on adapting a more remote approach to Digital Forensics was both challenging yet exciting, and our capabilities as a forensic team have developed enormously as a result. These new emerging technologies and process allow me to further develop my skillset on a continuous basis.
