Hi, I'm Panda!
I like building things with web technologies, playing board games and Dungeons and Dragons, traveling the UK and the world, taking photos on film, and hosting (usually themed) dinner parties.
When I'm working, I lead a team of software engineers at Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) (part of UK Research and Inovation). We develop web apps for the submission of proposals and gathering information about outcomes of experiments at STFC's National Laboratories.
Take a look at my résumé if you're interested in looking at my professional experience. Or take a look at my projects at @TickleThePanda at GitHub. You can find me at @email@example.com on Mastodon.
In my free time, I like to spend my time on projects. They cover a few different areas which range from collecting and visualising data to sharing my photography. Sometimes I use these projects to learn new skills, like design and the latest web technologies, but most of the time they are for fun. These are the ones that I want to share with you, though they might not be clean and polished.
