I am the Python developer for the Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope Data Centre and the lead developer of the SunPy project. I obtained a PhD in Numerical solar physics from Sheffield University in 2016, prior to my PhD I obtained a first class MPhys degree in Physics with Planetary and Space Physics from The University of Wales Aberystwyth, during which I spent 5 months studying at UNIS on Svalbard in the high arctic.

As the lead developer of the SunPy project. I am responsible for the SunPy Python package and the community around it. SunPy aims to provide a free and open source package for the analysis of solar data using the scientific Python ecosystem. To see more about SunPy visit its webpage www.sunpy.org, and to see more of my contributions to open source software see my GitHub profile.

As a member of the Python in Astronomy community I am involved in various community driven projects such as OpenAstronomy and the Python in Astronomy conference series. I also run various training workshops for scientists, especially astronomers, to teach better programming practices and Python for scientists.
