Web Developer

I’m a web developer focusing primarily on front-end development / JavaScript. I developed this team’s webpage along with Signal in concert with Dr. Jan Czarnecki. The team site is built combining React with the WordPress REST API. Signal is built using React, among other technologies.

My background prior to joining the team is in Biochemistry and Genetics (University of Nottingham BSc.) and Bioinformatics (University of Leicester MSc.). Besides programming, I also enjoy playing video games, watching horror films and recording music.
