Hi, I'm Sam and I'm an astrophysicist, data scientist, robotics and software engineer, astronomer and public presenter.
My primary work involves investigating the nature of dark energy, however I also spend a lot of time advocating of open-source development and proper coding practices. With years of experience from the financial software industry to machine learning pipelines classifying objects in the night sky, and teaching experience in statistics, software engineering, data manipulation, computational physics, and much more, I'm dedicated to increasing the level of coding proficiency in the scientific fields, and bringing basic coding knowledge to any eager student.
On top of my research work, I've run national coding workshops with content ranging from complete novices up to research experts. I'm excited to bring my knowledge and content to a wider audience, and hope that my direct and to-the-point teaching attitude allows students to understand the core concepts faster and better, saving students time and stress!
