I’m originally from North Shields in the North East of England, and I’m currently living in Nottingham, where I moved to study my first degree.

I hold an MMath Honours degree from the University of Nottingham, where I am now currently perusing a PhD on computational models for blood flow in the human placenta. I actively volunteer in many local charities such as Nottinghamshire Scouts, Nottingham Symphonic Winds, South West Notts Scouts, 2nd Beeston Sea Scouts, and have previously been a trustee for 3 of these.

I’m also a keen musician and play clarinet regularly in ensembles such as Nottingham Symphonic Winds Orchestra, Blackwood Clarinets, and Cirrus Clarinet Quartet.

Programming is also a key part of my interests; with which I have developed several professional websites, taught students how to use programming in scientific contexts, and continually use for personal projects and my PhD work.
