My name is Tom Auger and I’m an MSc student in Computer Science at the University of Edinburgh.

I’m focusing on the intersection between computer security and machine learning. For my master’s project I’m researching how privacy preserving technologies can protect sensitive information in datasets used for network intrusion detection.

Hire Me!

I’m available for hire as a software engineer starting September 2021 for roles based in Edinburgh, Glasgow, or remote (open to occasional travel).

With five years experience as a software engineer I’m eager to apply my knowledge and experience to new projects. I’m particularly keen on roles in computer/information security or machine learning.

Please reach out to me either by email or LinkedIn.
