Biography

The design and development of new technologies play a key role in the advancement of civilisation. Hand-in-hand with these technologies however, come a host of new challenges. It is my dream to one day help confront and overcome these issues and make the world a safer, more comfortable place in which to live. To achieve this goal, I am studying a double degree of Engineering and Computer Science with an aim of majoring in cyber security. Outside of University, my hobbies involve getting together with friends and a myriad of different sports such as athletics, fencing and archery.

Skills & Expertise

  • Problem solving
  • Python programming
  • Adventurous
  • Perseverance
  • Fixing things

The best advice I’ve been given is an arrow can only be shot by pulling it backwards. When life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means it's going to launch you into something great. So just focus and keep aiming.
