environment agency
website/app - current

Responsive web/mobile app being developed for the Environment Agency as part of university project, and within the framework of a completely revamp of their open data services.

The goal is to completely rebuild their "What's in Your Backyard?" service with an emphasis on mobile. As part of the front-end redesign, my team and I designed and built a slider feature to compare two geospatial datasets in a minimally-intrusive, user-friendly way.

The app will be available both on the web and packaged as a PhoneGap application.

bristol 2015 digital challenge
website/app - february 2015

Responsive web/mobile app submission to the Bristol 2015 Digital Challenge.

Developed in 48h by my teammates and I, the app was meant to connect local government with citizens by allowing the latter to draw on a map of the city, forming a heatmap of areas where people are interested in seeing improvements, and then giving city council the ability to focus their resources on such areas and contact users interested in volunteering.

Although we weren't selected for the finals, it was a fun experiment in crowd-sourced mapping and mobile development. The app is available both on the web and packaged as a PhoneGap application.

Website being designed and developed for the University of Bristol Computer Science Society, for which I serve as webmaster.

The goal is to build a sleek, modern portal for prospective undergraduates as well as current students, providing all manner of important services such as tutorials, student blogs, an events calendar, and job advertisements for existing students.

All current sections of the website are being overhauled, and additional sections such as job listings are in development.

EikonHack homepage
eikonhack 2.0
website - november 2014

EikonHack 2.0 was a data-visualisation hackathon sponsored by Thomson Reuters and Bank of America, won by my teammates and I.

As our submission, we built a real-time news analysis platform dubbed "NapTime", which pulled the top news from Reuters' API, parsed the headlines for relevant keywords, and displayed a real-time Twitter feed, sentiment analysis of the tweets, map of tweet locations, and relevant stock prices.

As UI/UX lead, I attempted to design and build a minimal, yet powerful dashboard for financial professionals looking to gauge sentiment around the web immediately after news breaks. Emphasis was placed on designing the interface beautifully and inline with other financial dashboards such as Eikon or the Bloomberg terminal.

website - current client

Rockerbox is a New York-based advertising technology startup. I was hired as a web-development intern over summer 2014, and have continued working with them since.

I initially redesigned and built their front-facing website, where responsiveness and minimalism were key.

The main goal of the project was to build their client dashboard from scratch using multiple JavaScript data manipulation and visualisation libraries (D3.js, Crossfilter.js, DC.js). Here as well, the emphasis was to provide a smooth user experience, and to give clients a unique and beautiful way to view and interact with their advertising data.

Hopps and Woolf is a UK-based startup intent on disrupting the alternative milk market.

I was hired in early 2014 to develop their front-facing website given mockups, and then to design and build their entire back-end customer area.

Extensive effort was placed on making their web portal as responsive and user-friendly as possible, and their payment processing platform is heavily inspired by e-commerce websites such as Amazon to maximise user satisfaction.

The project also includes a fully-featured admin panel, from which the team can process and dispatch new orders, add and remove promotional codes, and provide customer support (amongst others).

Realizing that the idea could potentially benefit others, the audience of the project was shifted towards usage by the general artistic community, and several months later it was renamed

let's cure diabetes!
website - december 2011

After having been diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes in 2010, I realised the extent to which misinformation about the condition was widespread. I set myself to the task of creating a simple "Explain Like I'm Five"-type website, to which I could refer friends who had any questions.

My initial goal was to sell t-shirts with unique diabetes-related motifs, e.g. playing on the "blue ring" symbol of the condition itself. Proceeds would be donated towards diabetes research.

Although the website itself is due for a makeover, and the sale of merchandise has yet to be undertaken, diabetes awareness remains on my mind, and I plan on revisiting the project in the near future.
