Ruby Granger is a YouTuber who specialises in "StudyTubing", a fairly recent trend which involves people essentially vlogging while they work.

Most "StudyTubers" upload unedited two-hour sessions, seemingly with the aim of having the viewer study alongside them in real-time. Ruby's videos instead involve her recording herself over entire days on time-lapse for up to 15 hours at a time.

She is studying Philosophy and Theology at Exeter University with 60, 500 followers on Instagram and 315,000 subscribers on YouTube.
