Patrick Ferris

I have been studying computer science for two years and have learnt a lot. I have always been interested in mathematics but it wasn't until I realised the powerfulness of computers and technology to do social and environmental good that I wanted to study it.

I've had some great working experience like spending three months researching and implementing machine learning techniques to predict cancer from patient prescription pathways at HDI. Which culminated in being co-authored on my very first paper. I am also, until September 2019, spending a summer at Amazon in London as a software developer intern on the Prime Video team.

My main passions lie in three main areas: climate change, healthcare and education. I am really interested in seeing how technology can disrupt these areas and bring about the most net social good possible. Check out the blog link above to see some of my articles on teaching and tech. In the future I hope to expand my horizons both in terms of learning and writing to include all three areas.

Outside of work and studying I take part in many societies at varying degrees of responsibility. Here are some of my roles I've had to date:

  • Hackers at Cambridge Juniour Treasurer
  • Pembroke May Ball 2019 Web Master
  • Hack Cambridge 2019 Sponsorship Team
