Research in computer science is exciting, but there's also much else out there. Love (playing and watching) football, skiing, traveling, and eating (possibly with some good wine), like going to the seaside and playing video-games (you should check out my ranking in PES League 2019 -- I was almost tempted to drop research to focus on gaming), like but bad at cooking, never gym, dislike violet (yes, the colour) and sushi, hate cucumbers, not so excited by beer but I kinda drink it.

During my PhD studies, I was a Teaching Scholar in the Department of Computing. I held several roles, including preparing and delivering lectures, lab tutorials, marking, and supervision of final year projects. I also studied for, and eventually been awarded the status of, Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.


Clearly I didn't make this web site; Alice Martini made it. It's also full of hacks.
