My name is Sarah Gallacher. I am passionate about creating new technologies and experiences that connect the digital and physical worlds.
I have a background in software engineering and have complimented my love of coding with many other skills including electronics, rapid prototyping, digital fabrication, and interaction design. Being able to design and build a connected concept from back-end server right through to fully-functional front-end is extremely satisfying!
I have primarily worked in research environments focused on emerging technology trends such as Smart Cities, Internet of Things, and the intelligent edge. My work has taken me all over the world and given me the opportunity to meet and collaborate with so many inspiring people from both academia and industry. They have taught me to always keep questioning, learning, and dreaming.
I have a PhD in Computer Science from Heriot-Watt University.
I am an IoT Technologist at the Digital Catapult.
