What are your favourite things about Blue Frontier?

There are so many reasons why I enjoy working at Blue Frontier, but just to mention a few, I love the beautiful office space right in the heart of Southampton and the great team spirit, with plenty of people to inspire me and learn from.

What does your Blue Frontier role involve?

I work with clients to develop solutions to meet their mobile app, web app and website requirements. I also work with the connected health team to link data nodes to create a collaboration between labs and hospitals across the globe.

What would your dream project be?

My dream project would be to collaborate with a self-driving car manufacturer and work with them as a machine learning engineer, focusing on self-learning algorithms to allow the vehicle to safely operate autonomously.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

Outside of work, I like to play football for a local Saturday team and enjoy learning to play snooker. I am also a sucker for trying new cuisines and won’t say no to a good quiz.
