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 worked in research environments, multi-national corporations and startups, always with a focus on emerging technology. 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 currently the Engineering Lead and Technical Co-founder of Urban Data Collective.
