Department for Transport Bus Open Data Consultant
Following on from my work in the summer of 2018 working with bus open data, I was asked by the Department for Transport to provide feedback on the upcoming national bus open data website. I provided feedback via video call and shared my desktop screen remotely. I was asked to perform a selection of different tasks around the site and I provided feedback on any areas I thought could be improved.

World Class School - World class student ambassador
While at UTC Reading, I was selected by my college Principal to join a select team of students to bid for a World Class Schools quality mark; a task which can only be achieved by the students. During the process we had to work to strict time constraints and work harmoniously as a team to produce the bid document and a supporting video. We have since found out our application has been successful, earning UTC Reading a World Class School quality mark.

MOS 4 Nations and World Championship
In 2017, I qualified for the UK & Ireland MOS 4 Nations Championship, a competition which tested contestants from across the UK at their proficiency of using Microsoft Office. In the Nationals I came 1st place in PowerPoint 2016 beating off 40,000 competitors. I then went on to represent the UK & Ireland in America, for the world championship- where I came in at 7th place.

The Brilliant Club
In 2017, I participated in the "Brilliant Club" program, which tasked me to write a university grade assignment on using machine learning (specifically K-means clustering) to sort a heterogeneous assortment of coins based upon their weight and diameter. As part of the program I learnt how to code K-means clustering in Octave with great success; a language which I had not used prior but quickly learnt. I obtained a First in the assignment, learning key skills such as referencing, structuring, researching and self-teaching.
