Agastya Silvina: I am an EngD student under the supervision of Dr Juliana K. F. Bowles. My work will consist of a variety of projects involving multiple cancer databases from NHS Lothian that stretch back several decades. I am a subtly charming web practitioner, a hipster-friendly Software Engineer, and a mayonnaise aficionado. I come from Indonesia and did my master in computer science here at St. Andrews (Double Erasmus Mundus MSc in Dependable Software Systems). Oh yeah, I love orca, panda, doodling, and maths.

As a consultant I have modelled and processed data for different industries.I enjoy working with Data Technologies and I’m very passionate about it, I like to work on side data projects too. My main interests are in Big Data, Machine Learning, Open Data, IoT and Free Software.
