I hold a masters in computer science and have many years experience in the IT industry.
I am very interested in the world of data science and visualisation. I like to code my visualisations in Processing and JavaFX, that is until I find something more exciting – well I have now side stepped into Big Data and data analytics.
I am currently working for a company in the business intelligence and anaytics area. I am gaining experience of Big Data (and my oh my it is) and getting exposure to Hadoop, as well as DB2 and Tableau. Previous to this I have worked on a short term contract involving MS SSIS, and an excel add-in, researching record linkage solutions for anonymous data-sets, as well as working in New Media and extensively in the finance sector.
