I am a scientist by education, now working as a developer/consultant. My technical interests include flexible information systems for Visual Analytics and Situational Awareness, Semantic Web, Distributed Systems, and NoSQL databases (Apache Cassandra, Neo4J, RDF triple stores).

I also take a wider interest in agile software development (or rather, how to build software well, and foster teams that build software well, rather than getting hung up on a particular methodology like XP, Scrum, Kanban, Lean etc).

I currently work primarily in Python, Scala and Java. In the dim and distant past I have dabbled with C, ARM assembler, BBC Basic, and Fortran 77. Oh, and PostScript:
