About this Page

I am Thierry Mamer and this page is about me and my academic and professional background. It gives details on some projects I was involved with in the past, the project I am involved with at the moment, and more importantly, what projects I would like to be involved with in the future. tm.jpg

My current contract is coming to an end in August and I am already putting some thoughts into what I should do next.

Academic Background

I originally come from Luxembourg, which is where I completed all my secondary education. I first discovered the joy of programming when I was taught Logo. Later I was working with Turbo Pascal and finally I moved on to Delphi, which is what really got me interested in software development. At the same time I enjoyed learning HTML and some basic PHP on my own. I then choose Computing Science as a main subject when I went to university.

I completed my Undergrad Honors degree at Aberdeen University, then I started a PhD at the Robert Gordon University, also in Aberdeen. While writing up my PhD thesis I was involved in a KTP collaboration project between the Robert Gordon University and Opus. Later I started a Research Masters with an Industrial Placement at British Telecom.

My PhD viva has now been passed successfully and I am working on my final corrections in order to graduate in July.
