Hi I'm Sam!

I've loved opening up computers and old Sony Mega Drives as a kid, so that I could have a look inside and try to figure out what was going on. From there, I grew a passion for all things logical, and a thirsty curiosity for how things work. I studied Computer Science in UCD in Dublin, Ireland. I went on to do a research master's in NLP, focusing on the automatic detection of English Puns.

I love Music and Rock climbing, although not very good at either! I play drums in a punk band in my spare time, and enjoy going to the local rock climbing gyms whenever my arms are capable.
