Hello! I am a computational biophysicist currently working on Fluctuating Finite Element Analysis at the University of Leeds, UK. You can get in touch with me at [email protected]. While you're here, please take a look at my CV and LinkedIn profile!

I have worked professionally as a web designer\developer for a variety of organisations, from non-profits to multinational corporations. I’ve presented my work on user interfaces and user experience at the STFC at Harwell and ARUP in London. I build fast, secure, functional and highly intuitive websites using HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, jQuery and WordPress.

Why Designing This Website Took 5 Years

I’ve been trying to create with a personal website since around 2010. Turns out, it’s really hard. For each website I design, I’ll typically come up with tens or sometimes hundreds of different mockups, although mostly small variations. Then, I’ll take all my favourite bits, and roll them into one. In this article, I’ll describe the best and the worst of those mockups.

I gave this presentation at the STFC in Harwell and at ARUP in London as part of the Engineering Development Trust’s ‘Future Industry Leaders Award’ competition. Although I didn’t win, I was offered a job as a result, which makes me feel better about not winning. This presentation focuses on how to design user experiences (UX) for highly technical websites, and why it’s important to do so.
