I'm a software engineer and computer scientist interested in a wide range of areas, but particularly around the development of web technologies.
Professionally I am Chief Technology Officer at Simply Do Ideas, which provides a platform helping young people to build and realise their entrepreneurial ideas. Otherwise I try to work on some other home and team projects when I get a chance to.
Before joining Simply Do Ideas, I was a software engineer at Chaser and before that I was a researcher at Cardiff University's School of Computer Science & Informatics, where I completed my PhD (looking into the 'unfiltered feed' problem in online social networks) and then moved on to join the UK MoD and US Army Research Labs coalition-led ITA project.
Whilst at Cardiff University, I also lectured the Advanced Computer Science MSc module Web & Social Computing and the Computer Science BSc module Human-Computer Interaction.
