-My main work is as a Software Developer with the Supernova Group. ​ I work primarily with ingesting catalogue data from the Pan-STARRS1 Telescope into a MySQL database, producing contextual classification of potential transient objects by crossmatching them with (10^9 rows of) locally ingested catalogue data.  During the last year I've been also working on using Harvard'​s Photpipe pipeline to produce difference images and catalogues for the ATLAS Telescope. ​ These catalogues are also being ingested into a contextual classification database.+My main work is as a Software Developer with the Supernova Group. ​ I work primarily with ingesting ​daily difference image detection ​catalogue data from the Pan-STARRS1 Telescope into a MySQL database, producing contextual classification of potential transient objects by crossmatching them with (10^9 rows of) locally ingested catalogue data.  During the last year I've been also working on using Harvard'​s Photpipe pipeline to produce difference images and catalogues for the ATLAS Telescope. ​ These catalogues are also being ingested into a contextual classification database.
  
 I've produced a web interface to help users select and prioritise objects for followup, based also on obtaining "​postage stamps"​ of the objects of interest. I've produced a web interface to help users select and prioritise objects for followup, based also on obtaining "​postage stamps"​ of the objects of interest.

-More stuff here soon.+Photpipe Spiral 1 tasks - produce diff catalogs from input ucam 4K images and test recovery efficiency of fake asteroids - are almost complete. ​ Development spiral 2 will start on 9th Feb 2015.  The ATLAS 10K camera has arrived, so new images for photpipe to test will be available ​soon.

-For VAMDC, I was responsible for developing the "node software"​ for the UMIST Database for Astrochemistry. I'm also responsible for providing tools for harmonising molecule identifiers (InChIs) across the ~22 databases in VAMDC. See what's currently on the menu for VAMDC [[.:​vamdc_development|here]].+For VAMDC, I was responsible for developing the "node software"​ for the UMIST Database for Astrochemistry.
