Alastair Hume

My current role is as the principal architect for DataLoch  where I lead the scalable infrastructure solution and technology strategy as well as work on data ingestion, data quality assessment and production of research-ready data. I look to engineer solutions, tooling and innovations that will help the DataLoch team deliver quality data in the most straightforward way, and with robust data-security controls.

My background covers a wide range of data-related projects including the Scottish medical imaging research repository, mathematical modelling of plant biology, distributed data integration systems, cloud computing infrastructures and financial data mining.

Prior to joining EPCC, I worked on several research and industrial applications including control and monitoring systems for ocean-based seismic surveys and a computer-vision system for cancer detection.

I have a BSc (Hons) degree in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence from The University of Edinburgh.
