Bio

Phillip Hartin spent 8 years in University learning all there is to know about computing. Achieving a First class honours degree in Computer Science in 2012, he was awarded the British Computing Society Medal and Prize for the highest ranking in his undergraduate year. Afterward, Phillip spent a further 3 years researching optimal methods to enhance human & computer interaction, becoming a battle-tested software engineer along the way - diving deep into app development, software system design, signal processing, and machine learning.
For his work and contributions in this field, he was awarded a PhD in 2016.

In his short time working in Australia, Phillip was awarded an Australian Graphic Design Association (AGDA) award for his work on The Design Conference App and been featured in an online interview by Ionic discussing hybrid mobile app development.

Aside from his professional pursuits, Phillip enjoys all things active, with a special love for weightlifting and surfing, despite being a self-proclaimed kook (in both).
