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
