“The internship culminated in the production of complete and validated code for a pilot project and a well formulated protocol for scaling up the work.

Our intern took the lead on co-ordinating and bringing together six programmers from across three different institutions and organised live coding sprints which played a key role in progressing on the development and validation of integrated code. He succeeded at this intimidating task which required leadership, organisation, clear communication and listening, forward-planning and delegation skills.

It was great to have our intern, the experience was both productive and fun. He was a vital member of the project team and throughout the internship he brought a positive energy and passion for his work. He rose to the challenges of working in an international and cross-disciplinary team and adopted a flexible approach. I particularly appreciated his problem solving skills and his patient and unassuming approach to communicating solutions and transferring knowledge. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with him again in the future.”
