Research Software Engineer

Rob Anderson's Face

I am a developer interested in making things both on the web and as apps. By day I'm a Research Software Engineer at Open Lab, a cross-disciplinary research group at Newcastle University. I make technologies to support researcher projects ranging from transport engagements through geolocation based tools all the way to global WhatsApp games

To make these projects happen I make use of a lot of technologies and methodologies. I'm a keen test driven developer and agile worker and always like to try out different frameworks. For instance this site uses Parcel and Pug with a sprinkle of Sass. To host all my projects I use Docker to containerise and orchestrate web stacks and I'm quite excited about Kubernetes at the moment.

My latest projects are always on GitHub and my latest ramblings are on Twitter.
