I am a recent addition to the Waterstons team, joining as a graduate in the summer of 2015. Prior to this I was at Newcastle University for almost ten years; whilst the vast majority of this time was spent as a student, I also had stints doing various research and teaching activities.
I was fortunate enough to have such an extended period of study, culminating with the opportunity to pursue a PhD. This undertaking was a straight forward choice as it not only provided a challenge, but also an environment in which to continue learning. During my time at Newcastle I continually heard strong praise for Waterstons, who were highly regarded both in terms of the work they undertake and the environment they provide. Following the completion of my PhD, I sought a new challenge which I believed Waterstons would provide.
Since starting I've had exposure to a number of new technologies and clients and enjoyed getting stuck in to projects from day one. I'm currently working on a large project that utilises technology to organise and manage trucks in a large logistical operation.
Outside of work I am fan of many sports. I try and get along to as many Newcastle Falcons matches as I can, while my other main sporting love is tennis. I'm also in the process of renovating my house, which is keeping me pretty busy, but when I get the time I also enjoy trying to keep up with the latest TV boxsets!
