Introduction & Background

I am a Software Engineer working since 2010 at the European Bioinformatics Institute, having previously spent over 8 years as a university researcher in the field of Machine Learning and Bioinformatics, giving me a good blend of enterprise and academic experience.

I enjoy contributing to the creation of great products for the benefit of people and working in a dynamic environment with a focus on good development practices and automation.

When not working, I enjoy playing with my wonderful two children, writing poetry and thinking outside of the box.
