Belfast, United Kingdom

I'm an experienced researcher with a PhD in computational astrophysics. I'm skilled in high-performance computing, scientific software development (including Python/C/MPI/OpenMP), data analysis, and visualisation. I have experience developing and using software on various supercomputers to solve systems of differential equations (e.g., for stellar structure and nuclear reaction networks) and carry out large-scale (>1000 core) Monte Carlo simulations of radiation and particle transport. I have a strong interest in computer graphics, performance optimisation, and enjoy learning new technologies. I would like to develop my knowledge of GPU programming (CUDA/OpenCL), machine learning, and computer vision (OpenCV).

CodersRank Score

What is this?

This represents your current experience. It calculates by analyzing your connected repositories. By measuring your skills by your code, we are creating the ranking, so you can know how good are you comparing to another developers and what you have to improve to be better
