I am an independent developer and researcher.
My development and research interests are multi-disciplinary, including:
- Text editing and conversion: scripts and software for extracting data from literature, legal texts and word-processing formats, and graphical tools for novel ways of interacting with texts.
- Sport software development: Creating software tools for sport match scoring and animation.
- Law and Literature: Teaching and practice. I have twenty years experience as a legal practitioner, working in several different roles including barrister, solicitor, in-house lawyer and principal of my own legal practice. I have represented clients in matters from Magistrates Court to High Court. I have also taught law to undergraduate and graduate students at local universities. My research interests include primers on the nature of law, legal texts as literature, and legal reasoning.
- Scientific computing: I like to work with data structures, ontologies and scientific computing workflows. I have worked as a bioinformatics Research Assistant at the University of Western Australia, helping to prepare and implement workflows for genomic analysis of next-generation sequencing data, using R, bash, SLURM.
