About

I’m a computer scientist with broad interests ranging across computational chemistry, high performance computing, algorithm design, human computer interaction and graph theory.

I’m currently a PhD student at the University of Bristol with supervisors David Glowacki and Simon McIntosh-Smith, where I’m applying high performance computing methods to problems in theoretical chemistry.

I’m also one of the developers of the multi-award winning Sci-Art collaborative project  ‘danceroom Spectroscopy‘ (dS), an interactive molecular dynamics simulation, which has been touring internationally over recent years as both a contemporary dance performance and a scientific outreach and educational installation. The Nano Simbox is another project with its roots in dS that aims to create a digital laboratory, where students and researchers may learn about the nanoscopic and molecular world through immersive interactive experiences.

I graduated from the University of Bristol in 2013 with a first-class MEng in Mathematics and Computer Science, before taking some time out to explore some small portion of the world.

This website serves two purposes, the first being to record what I’m up to, and the second to jot down snippets of information which I hope will be useful to someone somewhere grappling with the same problems as me.
