Biography

I studied Mathematics at the University of Edinburgh, however, I was already very interested in Computer Science at the time and took Computer Science courses as part of my degree. After my bachelor degree I pursued a Master degree in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. Once finished with University I joined a small Scottish company with big ideas: Runtime Revolution. They provide a true cross platform development solution (including desktop and mobile). Later I joined a Dutch company focusing on search software for the public library market, which is part of SerialsSolutions (itself a division of ProQuest). At SerialsSolutions I focus on all parts of the search application, from backend search technologies to front end client side technologies.
