"To question your own process is a necessity. If you don’t question yourself - it is impossible to improve."

Alejandro González Iñárritu (1963-) is a Mexican film director, producer, and screenwriter. He is most well-known for his critically acclaimed works Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) and The Revenant.

Hello! My name is Nikol and I look after the Laidlaw Scholars Network.

I am originally from Kazakhstan and I studied Human Sciences at UCL. My final research explored the potential effects of design on patient wellbeing in hospitals, and I also took modules such as Ethnographic Documentary Filmmaking, Anthropology of the Built Environment, Art in the Public Sphere, and other less interesting-sounding things :)

Drop me a line if you have any questions about the site, or if you'd just like to chat! I am always down to meet interesting people, so let's get [virtual] coffee ☕️


I love this. All the best leaders I know question constantly. It is why one of our values is #curious.
