About Me

I am a first year Computer Science BSc student at the University of Bath. I am passionate about Artificial Intelligence, High Performance Computing and Software Engineering.

My passion for Computer Science started when I was in primary school where I was interested in how a computer, and the software created for it functioned. When I completed work experience at McAfee in 2014, my passion for the field grew stronger from witnessing the software engineers work closely together to create a large piece of software. The ability to create software that can improve the lives of people still excites me today, and continues to motivate me to work towards becoming a Computer Scientist.

Outside of Computer Science, I enjoy playing the drums. I achieved my grade 8 in 2017 and have played many genres, both individually and in bands. You can learn more here. I have also volunteered at a monthly afterschool club for 5 years, and have been a children's small group leader at New Wine in 2017.
