Hi I am a PhD student. My thesis looks at the phenomenon of software ageing and rejuvenation. An indicator being machines degrading over time and through demand. They show signs of lagging and hang, ultimately they crash. By estimating the severity of lag and restarting software, not turning off machines, reduces downtime and reduces backup resources.
My areas of interest include programming, computer and network data, hardware architecture, databases, and more tactile computing such as multimedia authoring- websites, artwork, and testing and design- information architecture, interfaces, usability, inclusive design, and user experience. I was secretary for a small digital and mixed media limited company when I began higher education. I have also worked commercially for a UK based multinational software studio during sandwich year, and again as a graduate.
I graduated from LJMU in 2011 with a Multimedia Systems BSc (Hons.). My project dissertation was a wireless Arduino device, that displayed information about remote machines, and able to shut them down, turn them on, and functions remotely supported by web backend servers.
