Developer

I'm a nose-to-tail web developer, with web experience in MySQL, Postgres, Python, Django, Java, and Javascript. I model databases, and build front and backend interactions, with scripting and real time engines thrown in. My work focuses on practice-led research in Mixed Reality and the Digital Humanities.

Recently I've become interested in using embedded systems and Mixed Reality in education and immersive theatre.

I'm currently Senior Research Software Engineer at King's Digital Lab.
