I also work extensively with data science tools including R, Juypter notebooks, the Python/R data science tools available.

After working for many years as a computer programmer and software architect in London and Cork, I initially joined a small team in UCC working on a software project for the United Nations Population Fund and then worked on  larger  project for the Department of Marine and Natural Resources, developing a complex knowledge management system.
