A curious mind 💭

I learn by throwing myself in the deep-end and using technology I’m interested in on real projects.

I wanted to try a strongly-typed language, so I built a URL shortener in Go. I’m also curious about GraphQL, so I learnt how to construct queries by converting a REST API into a GraphQL API.

A problem solver 💡

The skills from my scientific background come into use surprisingly often. I try to take a systematic approach to solving a problem, testing a hypothesis either by writing unit tests or intentionally breaking code (and subsequently fixing it, of course).

I'm no stranger to puzzles and can even navigate my way around a Rubik's cube.

Lastly, some of the lovely things my colleagues have (anonymously) said about me during company awards —

"For always taking on work that even the most senior developer would shake at and doing such an incredible job with the work she delivers."
"She's grown from an engineer full of potential when she started, to an engineer bursting with skill now. Plus the talks she's giving and workshops she's helping out with in the wider community. 🙏"
"No matter what's thrown at her, she manages to absolutely smash it efficiently and on time, with minimal bugs woo!"
