Charles Draper (UK)

Life after Ertegun House

I subsequently spent three months in Berlin as a Scatcherd Scholar and worked as a doctoral fellow at the Distant Worlds Graduate School in Munich, where I became fascinated by technology’s potential to transform understanding of complex data. This encouraged me to pursue computer programming professionally. At the time of writing, I am employed as a software engineer for BAE Systems Applied Intelligence, the cybersecurity branch of BAE Systems. 

I also pursue a secondary career as a concerting theremin player, and continue to record and perform with ensembles and orchestras in the UK and abroad.

As an active member of Ertegun's Alumni Community, I am happy to be contacted by programme members past and present, as well as by prospective applicants.
