Hi! I’m Franky, originally from a small town in the middle of nowhere (near-ish to Manchester). I studied History at Sheffield Hallam Uni, the UK, then found myself in Manchester doing research. I’ve been a researcher since 2017, first 2 years in pharma then, when looking for a new challenge, I moved to consumer in April 2019 - which was definitely the right decision!​ ​ Understanding people and society is what interests me, and research gives me ample opportunity to do that in various sectors and business challenges. I enjoy learning new methodologies, pushing myself and having as much variety as possible to keep every day different - no one wants every day to be the same!​ ​ Away from work I like to spend my time playing and watching as much sport as possible (specifically the great Manchester City), digging through crates of any record shop I pass, trying to learn how to play the guitar, and drinking as many different beers as I can find.​
