I am a PhD Student in the UK. To different people I am known as a ...
Software Engineer / Entrepreneur / Mathematician / Cryptographer / Blogger / Tutor / Inventor / Unity Asset Store Publisher / inactive YouTuber / Huge .NET fan

I've worked at one of the 'big four' tech companies; with cyber security research groups; and with several startups. I've taught undergrads and lead small teams. To put it simply: by day I'm an academic; by night I'm a programmer.

I occassionaly post more academic content on my blog, but most of my online presence is programming related. I'm open to freelance work and I'm happy to chat to anyone with overlapping interests. Feel free to send me a message.
