About Me

/Who Am I

Welcome to my pages! I’m a second year Computer Science student at the University of Cambridge.

Knowledge of computer science is the modern superpower and I would like to make world a better place by using it. I am especially interested in cybersecurity, entrepreneurship and inspiring as many young students for computer science as possible.

However, I am a person of thousand interests. I used to be a wedding photographer before coming to university and am still very interested in photography and film. I also enjoy playing the guitar, listening to music and doing sports (mainly football and rowing).
