Extra-Curricular Activities


UCL Physics Society

I have been elected as Social Executive by the physics student body as part of the 2019/20 commitee for the UCL Physics Society. The role, which requires a lot of organisation on my part, involves dealing with events and networking with businesses. These come alongside communication and teamwork, as parts of my role include the rest of the committee and working directly with others. It has provided me with a fantastic learning experience and developed my whole skillset.


BBC Documentary: School Swap Korea Style

One of the most influential experiences of my life so far, I was part of a trip to South Korea with the BBC for a project to record a programme contrasting schooling there with schooling in Wales. It was an amazing and surprising experience which led to the realisation that the competition is global and that it is possible to sacrifice too much when tackling issues the wrong way.

STEM Cymru: Engineering Education Scheme Wales School Competition

I participated in an Engineering Education Scheme Wales (EESW) school competition across my county, in which I was part of a team that liaised with a real company, Mainstay Marine Solutions, in order to develop mathematical models to solve a real issue they faced. The importance of teamwork and communication are just a few things I took away from the project.

Skills & Projects

Coding & Software Development

Python 3

I am able to write programs to carry out data science tasks in Python first and foremost. I can also use it for other purposes; a project I am currently working on is building a mathematical derivative calculator. Taking string inputs and using a variety of functions, it slices the string and carries out operations to return the first derivative of an expression.

In addition to my training in Python, I am self-taught in font-end languages HTML5 and CSS, and am currently working on a paid project for a holiday cottage business, building a page for each cottage they run. Below are a few templates used in one of the sites.
