I am currently a medical student at the University of Nottingham School of Medicine. In 2019 I graduated with a computer science degree from Edinburgh University. My experience in university included being the lead software developer on the Univerity of Edinburgh Hyperloop team HYPED for a year where we went on to win a technical subsystem award from SpaceX in Texas.

I also spent time working on software development for the Centre for Discover Brain Sciences at Edinburgh University. I developed software for automated image analysis that has spend up tedious tasks by orders of magnitude.

After graduating I spent just over a year working as a software engineer at HubSpot. I was focused on developing large scale back-end applications for "list segmentation" - a system that allows customers to use high level operations to create complex queries. Here I gained experience developing using a variety of large scale software tools such as Kafka, HBase, Hadoop and Vitess.

As a co-founder of H2 Micro I’ve had experience with tasks related to running a small business. My primary responsibilities are developing backend systems and working to guide and develop the company’s projects and goals. Our primary product is Medical Crosscheck, an app designed to increase safety and efficiency in medical settings by digitizing critical checklists.

In my role as a backend developer I’ve developed large scale systems primarily running on Amazon Web Services. The technologies we typically employ include Apache, PHP and MySQL. I have developed APIs using this stack as well as others including Python (Django) based systems.
