Short Biography

I learned to code during my Physics degree, but it took working on large collaborative projects to understand how to write code that is actually sustainable!

I have a strong interest in making sure early-career researchers learn sustainable software techniques early on, so during my fellowship, I ran Software Carpentry workshops for the yearly intake of graduates and apprentices at STFC, while also helping other early-career colleagues to develop their teaching and event planning skills.

I have also started to promote accessibility in research software. During my fellowship, I learned about accessibility issues in depth, and I spent time on improving accessibility within my projects at STFC and The Carpentries. I am interested in developing best practice guidelines and workshops on this subject for the Research Software Engineering (RSE) community.

I enjoy collaborating with other SSI Fellows and the RSE community on projects such as the RSE Competencies Toolkit (https://rsetoolkit.github.io/rse-competencies-toolkit/). I'm often found at events like Collaborations Workshop and RSEConUK, and I'm always happy to chat!
