Hi there, I’m David!

I recently submitted my PhD thesis in Computer Science at the University of Waikato, based in Hamilton, New Zealand. My research focused on developing novel visualisation techniques for categorical data and demonstrating their effectiveness through applications in linguistics.

I am moving to the UK in August 2024 and am actively seeking a role in Data Science or Software Engineering. Feel free to reach out if you have any opportunities or would like to know more!

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, travelling, playing games (but weirdly, not gaming), exploring the outdoors and generally keeping active. Did I mention I have a chocolate addiction? My family and friends can attest to my razor-sharp wit and likeability, not to mention my modesty!

As a self-professed language nerd from Aotearoa, I have researched aspects of New Zealand English (NZE) and te reo Māori. Check out Kiwi Words for more information about related projects.
