About

Hi, I'm Rob. I'm a seismic structural engineer and I live in London.

During my PhD at the Polytechnic University of Bari (Italy) I started coding and I realised that I love solving engineering problems with it.

Soon enough I wanted to share such algorithms with people, especially with non-coders, and I started writing small desktop apps. Currently I work as a Research Fellow in the University College London and consultant for structural projects/numerical modelling.
