My name is: William Charles (also go by Billy) I study History at the University of York My research is about: Government policy response with regards to the use of the military and Covid-19. I chose this research topic because: It encompasses two areas in which I have a keen interest, politics and the armed forces, as well as being relevant and useful in today's environment. I am from: Nottinghamshire, UK When I'm not studying/working, I like to: Play rugby, fresh water swimming, for the most part being outdoors. One thing about me that surprises people: I used to work in finance, I spent three years as an auditor and accountant at Mazars, a large French multinational providing a range of business advisory, assurance and external audit services. Ask me about: Anything, I am chatty and friendly guy, and am planning on making the most of this opportunity, and would therefore like to get to know as many of you as possible, especially if our research projects overlap and we are able bounce ideas of one another. I'd love to connect with someone who: Has knowledge or experience they'd be willing to share about life and work in public service, i.e. MoD, civil service, politics.
