      I'm currently working as a software engineer at the Glasgow University Software Service. I work on various projects for both external and internal clients. My main focus is the MyPath Reporting System, which is used by the University of Glasgow to track student progress and provide feedback. I have a heavy focus on the backend / server engineering, but I also work on the frontend, ensuring the security and updates of the various aspects of the application are kept in check.


I have been working on a project called MyPath, which is a web app that allows students to track their progress through their degree. It is built using React, and uses a custom API built using Django & Django Rest Framework, with an Azure SQL database, and hosted on UofG Servers.
