2014 (PhD) & 2009 (MSc)
What are you doing now?
After completed my PhD, I joined Sky Network Services in London as a DevOps Engineer and Network Capacity Planner. Apart from developing in-house applications for daily business operations, I also look after the capacity aspects of the enterprise and media broadcast networks of Sky. e.g. allocate network resources to different projects from time to time, make network equipment upgrade and purchase decisions, etc..
What is your favorite memory from your time studying Computer Science in St Andrews?
My MSc class was a small group of less than 20 students from 8 countries. We studied hard and played harder together like a big family. I really miss it how we used to all stay up late in the lab to discuss and complete our assignments together. It was the best year of my student life.
What was your favorite module, and why?
CS5023 Mobile and Wireless Networks – I’m always passionate about computer networks. It felt really satisfying to learn the underlying theories of how everyday network technologies actually work, and more importantly to understand the reasons of some current WiFi and mobile network challenges.
