I'm very excited to (finally) announce that I've embarked upon a part-time PhD in Computing Science at Newcastle University!

I'm at the very beginning of a journey that is expected to last about six years. The area I am going to be working in is functional stream processing and distributed systems architecture, in the context of IoT. This means investigating and working with technologies such as Apache Spark; containers (inc. Docker); Kubernetes and OpenShift; but also Haskell. My supervisor is Prof. Paul Watson. This would not be possible without the support of my employer, Red Hat, for which I am extremely grateful.

I hope to write much more about this topic here in the near future, so watch this space!
