Software Engineer, IT Support Specialist, and Postgraduate Student in Aberystwyth, United Kingdom
My name is Oliver and I’m a MSc Computer Science postgraduate at Aberystwyth University, Wales.
I’m currently working towards becoming a software engineer following graduating first class from my undergraduate Computer Science with German Bachelor’s degree. I’m most interested in full-stack web development and 2D video game design, but I am keen to explore other avenues of software engineering also. I’m a jack-of-all-trades looking to acquire experience in everything that interests me!
I am currently employed as a part-time Teaching Assistant at my university, and I volunteer for the Nightline Association’s IT Department and the Central Florida affiliation of Hostelling International USA. I previously interned at Amadeus IT Group in Frankfurt am Main, Germany as a front-end developer.
I have also done a lot of work the realm of mental health, namely suicide intervention, active listening, mental health first aid and training others in those areas for Aberystwyth Nightline, Student Minds Aber, and Aberystwyth University Students’ Union.
Outside of the above, I endeavour to live stream my work frequently and write periodically for my profiles on LinkedIn and Minds.
