STFC, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Didcot United Kingdom


I did an MSci in physics at Cambridge before taking a year to travel.  I then started work at STFC near Oxford in the e-Science department.  I am currently working on two projects. One is APEL, the grid accounting system used by EGEE and EGI. I am working on developing a new version of the system in Python.  The second involves collecting data from scientific experiments including ISIS, a particle accelerator. My project is to collect data from different sources including Microsoft Sharepoint and Oracle databases, and prepare the storage database for the experimental data. I have got two years' experience programming in Java and Python on Linux and I am currently gaining experience programming C# in a Windows environment.  I also like playing many different sports and doing puzzles.
