Anne is ‘our man’ in Engineering. She’s working on the Modular e-administration project with Richard Prager. The first part of this was developing a small lightweight piece of software to help with the allocation of teaching duties to staff. This is now being implemented for other departments within the University. Anne’s first degree was in the Natural Sciences Tripos at Cambridge and she’s pleased to be back, contributing to teaching and learning at the University. It also helps that she’s familiar with the intricate and sometimes archaic academic systems of the University.
Anne is a talented and thoughtful developer. Her main goal is to make software which is easy to use and has a clear purpose. She came to CARET after a spell away from work raising her children, whilst volunteering at Aptivate – a non profit organisation which develops IT services to aid International development. In the past she’d worked in IT for Reuters on stock exchange feeds and also spent time in the USA building software for companies distributing baby clothes and for a wine warehouse. She’s also worked at Coutts bank, and spent time above a funeral parlour (spooky!) while working for a London based software company.
Anne enjoys visiting National Trust properties in her spare time, dabbling in a little watercolour painting and gardening. Most impressive is the amazing igloo she built in her back garden!
