My professional interests include all things software development. I tend to lean more towards the front-end side of things as I have a natural eye for design and I get to delve in the UX area. I do also enjoy dipping into back-end development, DevOps, and playing with fun tech like Raspberry Pi devices.

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.
