About

I’m currently in my fourth year of an undergratuate degree in Computer Science at the University of Warwick. I started here in 2015, where I also completed a year of Mathematics and Statistics.

In the Summer of 2019, I worked as an intern in the Intelligent Vehicles team at WMG, University of Warwick, investigating battery replacement strategies for fleets of autonomous electric vehicles, as well as some other general fleet optimisation.

Before Warwick, I was a student at Lord Lawson of Beamish Academy from 2008-2015.
