This is (Dr.) Adrian McMenamin’s blog (mainly) about computing, maths and science – though other things might feature from time to time.

I have just been awarded a PhD in Computer Science from the University of York. Before that I got a BSc (Hons.) in Astrophysics from Edinburgh University in 1987, and a Master’s degree (with distinction) in Computer Science in 2011, from Birkbeck College of the University of London. And I also have a PgDip in Journalism Studies from the University of Westminster (1993).

I have contributed some bits and pieces to the Linux kernel and wrote this perl module. You can see various pieces of work at GitHub – here – and read my MSc project report – on memory management in the Linux kernel – here.

I have spent my working life, thus far, in political communications but am now looking to use my computing experience in industry. If you’d like to give me a job I’d love to hear from you. Needless to say nothing written here constitutes the views of any employer, past or present.

  1. Hi – I couldn’t find a contact email address for you.
    If you would like a wider audience for your writing I would be happy to publish it on I Programmer – especially the articles on advanced computer science and programming.
    Email me to discuss if you are interested.

  2. Good blog !

    Regarding “With zero thanks to @AmazonKindle”, you may want to consider alternatives to the Kindle. I got a 10 inch M92 ebook from Onyx ( I got it on a German site) to read technical documents, much better ( https://www.onyx-boox.com/onyx-boox-m92).

    NOTE: I have nothing to do with the company onyx 😉

    hope it helps.
