Civilising Influence at Virtalis
Europe’s leading Virtual Reality (VR) company, Virtalis, has recruited its first woman programmer to join its burgeoning Development Team. Nicola Curran, 24, joins Virtalis from a CAD company.
She holds a bachelor of science degree in Computer Games Technology from Liverpool John Moores University.
“I am used to being outnumbered”, said Nicola. “My university course had only three women and there were no other women in my previous company. My interest in computers stems from childhood. I just love them, so a job at Virtalis is ideal.” Nicola lives in Croxteth and enjoys amateur dramatics outside work. She is currently working alongside another new recruit, Nick Hunter, to develop a software application that enables stereo viewing on a laptop. David Cockburn-Price, Virtalis’ MD commented: “With a list of high profile projects as long as my arm underway, we are delighted to welcome Nicola to the Team.”
