Development highlights, 2013 to 2016

Outside of Duck Whistle, I have been doing the following roles.

In these concurrent posts, I have been supporting academic researchers and students to access and exploit specialist financial and company databases, mostly in the area of Business and Management. I have written software in Python, Java and VBA and make expert use of the platforms provided by the database suppliers such as Bloomberg Professional and Thomson Reuters Datastream. I am also a ‘Digital Pioneer’ in the Library and have been following and leading in the development of Digital Humanities.

In June 2016 I attained certification in Bloomberg Market Concepts.
