(Student Profile)

Andrew Graves

Studied: MSc Advanced Methods in Computer
Science, PhD Computer Science

Currently: Working for a large US investment
bank, in London. I'm involved with the
development of software that derivatives traders
use to book trades and manage risk.

Why did you choose Queen Mary?

I was working in the industry as a software
engineer and I wanted to do a research-based
postgraduate course. I found that the Department
of Computer Science had a healthy research
reputation and offered an advanced MSc that
allowed me to work closely with the research
groups. After enjoying my Masters, I decided to
stay and study for a Doctorate. This decision was
easy because the department is full of talented
researchers and, owing to its relatively small size,
offers a good, friendly environment in which to
live and study.

What did you gain from your time at Queen Mary?

I managed to learn a lot about Computer Science:
how to design and perform research experiments,
how to write scientifically and get published, how
to mentor and teach.

What are your career plans for the next five years?

I am currently working in the financial sector
where I get to work on complex software
systems for demanding users. I enjoy software
development and architecture
