I joined Doris in July 2016 after completing a masters degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Manchester. Now I'm part of the Non-Functional Testing Team based in a High Street Retail Bank in Skelmersdale. In one day I went from 'sending people to Mars' to 'working in a bank'! Doesn't sound related, I know. Yet during my degree I had come to realise the importance of testing and how horribly wrong things can go if you don't do it right. I've had the chance to be involved in every part of a project's life cycle, from conception to delivery, and have to admit that testing was my favourite part. So maybe not that unrelated after all..
In particular, my role now involves analysing and testing the operational aspects of the midrange platforms for key banking applications to confirm they are "fit for purpose" in a live environment.
Outside of work I love to read, to travel, to play bridge, to dance, to try new things in general, but especially food.
