I am a freelance author and data scientist. The aim of my work is to make computer-related subjects accessible to everyone.
My first book covered databases for small businesses. My second, which I am in the middle of writing, looks at codebreaking during the second world war.
My background is in academia, working as a computer scientist at Manchester University. I have two postagraduate degrees in computer science (PhD and Masters) and two undergraduate degrees (mathematics and law).
