These positions allowed me to gain a range of complementary skills in the programming field, with a focus on code quality and performance.
Academically I have a first class degree in computer science and a masters degree in computational intelligence and robotics, the latter of which I received funding for from the EPSRC.
I am have been passionate about computers since a young age, as reflected by my academic and professional path. I have been involved in countless personal projects, enjoy finding solutions to challenges, and am always eager to try new approaches to computational problems.
