In 2016 I completed a second summer internship programme at Morgan Stanley, where I was based in a team responsible for the development of a Sales and Trading application. I created a microservice for accessing and modifying symbol data using C# and the .NET Web API. I also made use of continuous integration and test driven development.
I spent ten weeks on a Technology and Data summer internship programme at Morgan Stanley in London, working in the Application Support Group for FX. I was able to gain an understanding of both the technical and business sides of their FX trading systems, and came across new technologies such as kdb+. My main project was a tool written in Perl that allowed members of the support group to track the flow of orders through the trading system in order to diagnose problems.
I spent two weeks at Aquarium Software, where my role was to respond to support tickets from clients. I also spent some time with the developers of Aquarium, who gave me an introduction to the technologies behind the software and introduced me to C#, which I used along with the .NET Framework to develop a small project.
Worked for two weeks with a group researching the development of a rectification device capable of operating in the terahertz frequency range. I operated optical and electrical measurement apparatus, as well as conducting analysis of the data produced by these instruments.
I took a work experience placement for two weeks at Taskers PLC. My responsibilities included installing software, configuring new computers, setting up new hardware, updating device firmware and other miscellaneous tasks.
In my spare time I enjoy reading and playing the guitar and piano. I also have an interest in remote control vehicles, and have built my own quadcopter. I am an active committee member of my University's Outdoor Society, which arranges walks in Yorkshire and the surrounding counties each sunday.
