I work as a CICS developer for the CICS TS for z/OS product in the IBM Hursley labs. My work is predominantly focused on testing Java EE features in a CICS Liberty JVM server environment, but recently has branced into development and analytics.
In 2009 I started a BSc Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence at Aberystwyth. At the end of my second year my grades were high enough to be able to switch onto MEng Software Engineering (integrated BSc and MSc).
I'm a firm supporter of open source software and, even though my job makes it difficult to contribute to projects. In the past I have contributed art to the Battle for Wesnoth project and have volenteered at the FOSDEM conference.
