You've stumbled across my website - I hope you find something that will interest you. I am a PhD student in the department of Computing Science at the University of Glasgow with a research focus on education in computing.

I graduated with a First Class MSci (Undergradute Master's) degree in Computer Science from the University of Glasgow in 2018. I also recieved a special award for the most outstanding research project in the MSci cohort, a variation of which was published at the 2018 ICER Conference and received the Chair's Award. These recognitions of the potential impact of my work in the field of computing science education led me to pursue further research and begin my PhD in 2019.

In addition to my research I have some experience in Software Development from various roles in industry. A few of the projects I have been involved with are detailed on this site. If you see anything that interests you and would like to know more or are interested in speaking to me about other projects, please use the contact links below.
