I am a principal software and data architect who joined EPCC in 2003. I provide the technical lead for software development or data analysis projects for both academic and commercial clients.
Mr Ally 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.
