About Me

Home » About Me


I currently work as a research software engineer at Microsoft Research, Cambridge. Previously, I was a software engineer for Arista Networks, first in the San Francisco bay area and then in London. Before that, I worked at Data Connection (now Metaswitch Networks) in Enfield, north London.


I spent four years studying Maths at Robinson College, one of the colleges of Cambridge University. I followed the undergraduate tripos for three years, followed by the Certificate of Advanced Study in Mathematics, also known as Part III. As part of the Part III course I wrote an essay on Sporadic Simple Groups.

After 11 years I returned to Cambridge as a graduate student at the Cambridge University Computer Lab.
