Short Biography

I am a Research Software Engineering at Aberystwyth University working on the Supercomputing Wales HPC project with Bangor, Cardiff and Swansea Universities. I'm responsible for helping people across the university make better use of HPC resources. This includes a lot of time spent helping getting software running in an HPC environment, improving its performance and sometimes writing things from scratch. I'm also involved with running a lot of training, mostly in the form of Carpentries workshops.

My background to get to this point in my career has taken me through a number of vaguely related areas. I started out studying Software Engineering as an undergraduate where I spent a year on an industrial placement at Hewlett Packard working on high performance computing. Since then i've done a PhD on biologically inspired power management for robot sailing boats, attempted to cross the Atlantic ocean with a robot sailing boat, helped food and water security researchers build an online research hub, built robots for surveying calving glaciers in Greenland, worked as a systems administrator for a ""Robot Scientist"", developed and run training courses for industry on cyber security, continuous integration and Arduino programming, taught undergraduates about open source development and ubiquitous computing and worked as the Data Manager at a national facility doing automated high throughput plant phenotyping.
