Computational science; early career training; accessibility of research software; equity, diversity, and inclusion within research as a whole
I am an IT Developer at The Carpentries. Currently, I help to develop and maintain the AMY database, where we track all our instructors and workshops.
I learned to code during my Physics degree, but it took working on large collaborative projects to understand how to write code that is actually sustainable!
I have a strong interest in making sure early-career researchers learn sustainable software techniques early on, so during my fellowship, I ran Software Carpentry workshops for the yearly intake of graduates and apprentices at STFC, while also helping other early-career colleagues to develop their teaching and event planning skills.
I am also starting to advocate for accessibility in research software. During my fellowship, learned about accessibility issues in depth, and I am now working to improve accessibility within Carpentries infrastructure. I am interested in developing best practice guidelines and workshops for the RSE community.
