Skills & Experience
Learn more about my skills & experience as a software engineer
I proudly graduated from The University of Leeds in 2016, with a First-class (Hons) in Computer Science. I also received an award for academic excellence two years in a row during my time at University.
I thoroughly enjoyed my degree. I enjoyed the challenges it presented, and the opportunities it has given me for my future. I worked hard, and it paid off, and that has enabled me to do something as a job every day, which feels much more like a hobby.
Working within the Shell Agile Hub team in London, focusing on product development within environmental solutions, specifically the voluntary carbon market, enabling companies to meet their goals of reducing their net carbon footprint. The tech stack is primarily React, TypeScript, GraphQL, CosmosDB and Azure.
