Welcome

Welcome to my little corner of the internet! I blog, vlog, write and do science!

This site is my home on the web and points to my various projects around the internet and in real life. Enjoy!

Tinker Tailor Soldier Sponge

I blog about tech (Tinker), costumes (Tailor), airsofting (Soldier) and baking (Sponge).

Tinker

I like to tinker with Linux, LaTeX and Windows.

You'll find guides on inserting equations into Word documents correctly, generating MR pulse sequence diagrams in LaTeX, setting up a media server and the like.

Tailor

I semi-regularly go to events in fancy dress.

For the most part this section covers the time I dressed up as Thor but new content will be coming soon.

Soldier

I am an airsofter though I don't get to go as often as I'd like. There will be more content coming in future.

Sponge

I enjoy baking and making interesting cakes.

Stop by for MRI scanner cakes, giant versions of famous biscuits and anything else I put my mind to baking!

The Rest

I also talk about my PhD and review teas!

Scientist

PhD

I have completed a PhD in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) at the University of Manchester. I now work for MR Solutions.

If you are interested in my research you can find me on LinkedIn.

Physicist

I attended Warwick University from 2007-2010 reading Physics. I achieved a Second-class honours, upper division (2:1) B.Sc.

I concentrated on modules related to C programming, astrophysics, medical imaging and magnetic resonance.

Web Design

CV

I had an interactive CV powered by WordPress. This site used WordPress as a content managment system allowing the CV to be ordered autmatically by date, tags and categories. It also used a plugin to generate an interactive CV timeline.

This has now been replaced by the CV as part of this new SquareSpace website.

Manchester SSAGO

I updated and maintained the Manchester SSAGO website powered by WordPress.

The Manchester SSAGO Website

The Manchester SSAGO Website

I made custom CSS for and ran the Manchester SSAGO Ball 2014 website.

I have a YouTube channel called WYL2KM?* There I discuss the life of a PhD student and try to give advice to help people through their PhDs. Every fortnight I make silly videos and I also post personal vlogs and travelogs.

Currently my channel is on hold while I complete my PhD. New videos coming Autumn 2014!
