Tom Wemyss

I’m a student and a software developer, based in the UK.

I design and create software to solve problems in data science - from modelling vision deficiencies, to comparative genomics.

I've written about some of my projects below. If you have any questions, or if you've got a project you'd like some input on, please feel free to get in touch with me via hey@to.mw (PGP key).
