How long have you worked in your role/s?
Since July 2021
What inspired you to work in the tech industry?
I previously worked in science, completing a PhD in Chemistry. During my time there I wanted to make my data processing more efficient. I picked up python and wrote some initial pipelines for processing the data coming from my instruments. As I improved I started writing things in my own time, things like discord bots for making leaderboards with my friends. This all lead to a positive feedback loop of improvements at work making my personal projects better and visa versa, until i was writing programs for colleagues and building out an entire chapter of my thesis based on computation and simulation. In the end I decided that programming was the most exciting part of the job and decided to pivot into the tech industry.
