I am a Software Development Engineer at Findmypast in Dundee, Scotland.

Previously, I worked at the University of Dundee’s Space Technology Centre on PANGU v4 for the European Space Agency and at Dundee Satellite Receiving Station on web applications for Earth observation.

When I am not coding I enjoy learning Japanese and playing guitar.
