About Me

Hi, I'm Simon, a third year Forensic Computing and Security student at Bournemouth University with a passion for web development. I am currently on my placement year at Greenwood Campbell, a digital agency in Bournemouth.

My main focus within web is back end development, however seeing the awesome creative work of my collegues it has encouraged me to step up my game and explore other areas.

Morving forward I hope to round out my year with a better understanding and practical experience in front end development, UX and SEO










Here is a collection of projects that I have completed during my time at university. These projects were devloped to practice both front and back end dev, as well as some designing

Systems Design

With a focus on ‘upstream’ development tasks, I learnt about the needs and of software system designs, and explore the problems with traditional systems development such as human computer interface design and usability.

Ethical Hacking & Countermeasure

I learnt about the relationships between security and what can compromise it. Part of my practical work was to perform a penetration test on a system and provide a report on my methods and findings

Malware Reporting Social Engineering Kali

Digital Forensics

I made security plans and used forensic techniques in distributed and non-distributed environments. Practical work focused on non-distributed environments, and topics covered included data structures and algorithms.

Reporting Presenting Forensic Investigation

Project Management

I gained experience of working in a team on an IT systems development project based on my chosen degree title, which will prepare me for work placement.

Infastructure Strategy

I explored the relationship between the goals of Information Systems and the infrastructure strategies of small and medium enterprises. I looked at computer and networking infrastructures and characteristics like flexibility, scalability, performance, resilience, quality of service and security, and design choices and implications of corporate infrastructure

Industrial Placement

On my placement I have been exposed to C# and development within the Microsoft Stack, using Umbraco and Kentico as CMS and how a project flows from design to build to support. I have also been a part of their emerging tech research and development, creating chatbots for clients. My work is not limited to back end development, I have also been the lead QA on a number of projects and I am learning about the tools and processes of the designers and front end developers with a view to have a well rounded understanding and practical experience in all parts of the development cycle.
