About MeI am a C++ enthusiast, currently writing toolchains and standards for heterogeneous systems. My CV is available here.
I am from Edinburgh, Scotland, which is known for its castle, history, and unpredictable weather. I studied Computer Science at the University of St Andrews, graduating with a 1st class BSc (Hons) in 2013.
I have an unhealthy love of template metaprogramming and the dark corners of C++. This blog is intended to be an outlet for discoveries and musings on C++ and any other tools which interest me.
I am active in various community areas:
- Specification editor for the HSA Tools and Runtime groups
- Co-organiser of Edinburgh C++ Meetup
- Gold C++ badge holder on Stack Overflow
