As told by the BBC News, Alana Cutland was studying natural sciences at Robinson College. She was "a bright, independent young woman". At the time of her death, she was on an internship in Madagascar. According to the witnesses, days before her possible suicide Ms. Cutland had been frustrated and "disappointed" with her research project.
