**University of Edinburgh Students:** Sorry, I'm not supervising any
projects this year. I'm managing MSc projects supervised by Amazon Development Centre Scotland,
and am not involved in UG projects. I won't be taking on self-proposed
projects.

I don't supervise project students from other Universities.

Any past student who would like links to their name or project added or removed, get back in touch.
