Faisal Taher Hi there! I'm Faisal and welcome to my website. I'm a full-stack developer, a designer, and a scientist. My work encompasses a wide range of elements: front-end development, back-end development, UX design, fabricating custom hardware, writing documentation, maintaining and updating deployed systems, providing product demonstrations, and training customers.

I am proactive in both product development and shorter term client projects. I also enjoy the dynamics of working in a team, such as brainstorming sessions that generate too many post-its, design planning (these always include funky sketches), retrospectives, and working collaboratively and transparently towards goals.

One of my favourite projects that I worked on involved developing a network discoverable Raspberry Pi LED light device and a web application that uses a colour wheel to control the light.



My professional interests include software development, and capitalising on every opportunity to include elements of design and UX techniques. I believe that development, especially the work we do, highly benefits from user-centricity and identifying the target audience. In the past couple of years I have also taken to programming in Python, which I find very user friendly and quick for application development.

Whilst I enjoy designing and writing software applications, I also enjoy designing custom hardware using CAD modelling tools (e.g. Autodesk Fusion 360, Illustrator), and using a 3D printer and laser cutter to fabricate them. I also enjoy experimenting with electronics, for example, one of my projects as a Research Associate at Lancaster University involved constructing different types of actuator prototypes (using electromagnets, Shape-Memory Alloy, hydraulics, etc.).

In my spare time I enjoy photography, playing guitar, going to the gym, cooking, sketching, and if I can get a chance, playing some form of sport.
