Open Source

In my free time I enjoy contributing to open source projects, the largest of which are the Chromium, WebKit and Firefox browser engines.

This lead to me successfully applying to the web platform team at Igalia.

University Projects

Medical LMS - MeDL

A web-based learning management system (LMS) for testing clinical decision making amongst medical students.

Scenario Editor Scenario Viewer Account Security

Year 3 - Group Dissertation Project

This project focussed on producing a proof of concept LMS for clients who work at the University Hospital Wales. The core aim was to make the creation of training scenarios accessible to those without technical knowledge. My main contribution was the drag and drop scenario editing interface. I also created the account system which included single sign-on and two-factor authentication.

IoT and the Community

Year 3 - Emerging Technology Project

The project aimed to provide a solution to reduce loneliness and social exclusion amongst elderly people in the Usk area for Monmouthshire County Council. It used an array of Z-Wave IoT sensors which connect to a receiver on a Raspberry Pi. The data from these sensors was sent to a central Express server, where a React front-end could manage the participants and view the data.

Drone course management system - Aviation Systems Group

A web-based system for handling the booking and marking of drone courses.

Year 2 - Commercial Applications Project

The client for this project operated a drone certification course. Their existing data management solution relied heavily on Excel. The aim of this project was to produce a web-application to help improve these business processes. The system handled user registration, event management, and tracking of results. This allowed the client to focus on running the courses themselves.

Year 1 - Android Group Project

The aim of this project was to create a proof-of-concept Android application for Cardiff University's School of Pharmacy. The application enabled users to more easily access information about all pharmacies in Wales, including location, contact details, opening hours and services.

I personally made a Flask based server, to serve the pharmacy information, and used an Android networking library to retrieve the data on the client side. This better simulated a real world scenario, showing how the data could be updated by a pharmacist if the app were to be released. I also created a feature that allowed users to create reminders for prescriptions; this was stored locally in the app, using an SQLite database.

Event data collection system - Welsh Rugby Union (WRU)

Year 1 - Web Development Project

The WRU required a prototype web application, which they could use to collect, store and analyse event data such as total attendance and audience demographics. I made use of a service worker to add offline functionality; this allowed data to be collected at events but submitted at a later time should internet access not be immediately available.
