Matt’s first venture into the field of Computer Science came about when he acquired a First Class degree in Software Engineering from the University of Wolverhampton. During this time, Matt was able to gain essential industry experience through his enrolment in an internship program at a firm based in Worchester named OpenGi, developing software for the insurance industry.


Matt chose to continue his personal development when he enrolled on a Computer Science Masters course at the University of Wolverhampton, during which he undertook a research project to determine the attitudes of social media users towards the UK’s EU Referendum, through the application of Sentiment Analysis and Machine Learning techniques.


Following this, Matt decided to pursue a career path in higher education, resulting in his appointment as a Demonstrator in Computer Science at the University of Wolverhampton in September 2016. Matt plans to continue exploring his research interests in Sentiment Analysis and Machine Learning through the completion of a PHD, that combines these topics in the near future.
