Back in 2013, we celebrated the tremendous achievements of Paul Whittington, an ALS student with Cerebral Palsy that ALS has been supporting for several years. Four years later, we celebrate him again.
After graduating with First Class Honours in Computing in 2013, Paul secured a Vice Chancellors award to study for a Phd. Paul is now proud to report that he has now submitted his PhD – 467 pages long and about 80,000 words. He also shared the good news that his work was recently cited in a book by one of the well-known authors in the Human Computer Interaction domain!
Paul aims to submit his final thesis in August. He is also working as a Research Associate in the Faculty of Science and Technology.
What an amazing journey! We hope that it is only the beginning of a successful academic career!
