About me

I'm a student studying software engineering at the University of Sheffield, UK. As part of my course I am currently on a year in industry working at Plusnet as a Junior PHP software developer.

Throughout university I've developed my knowledge of programming practices and how to successfully write clear, maintainable and testable code. This has been done through the numerous projects I've done as part of the course, learning new languages and frameworks such as Ruby and Rails. Throughout my course I've studied numerous fields of computer science including: machine learning; Robotics and Human-Machine interaction; Functional programming; Networks and Architecture; Automata and Complexity; And more. These have provided me with opportunities to develop code for external clients and to see my system implemented and helping a customer.

I have experience outside of University working on personal software projects some of which are available on my GitHub. These numerous projects I've worked on have developed a clear understanding of object-orientated programming and clean web development styles and practices.
