Life After DoC

What do you do with a BA in War Studies? In my case: an MSc and a PhD at DoC. These degrees in turn led to jobs at a number of academic and non-academic institutions, including at one point returning to the Department as a post-doc in the research group with which I did my PhD. In this talk I will discuss my experience of working in a variety of environments and reflect on how my time(s) at DoC prepared me for what was to come.

Nick Dingle obtained an MSc in Computing Science from Imperial College London in 2001 and a PhD in Computing from the same institution in 2004. After working for Dstl from 2004 to 2007, he was employed as a Research Associate at Imperial and the School of Maths at the University of Manchester between 2007 and 2013. His main research interest is parallel numerical linear algebra, with a particular focus on the efficient solution of large sparse systems. He is currently employed by NAG Ltd as an HPC Software Developer but retains a visitor's position at the University of Manchester. Email to me→
