Finlay McCourt

I'm primarily a Python developer, working with the Django framework.

My background is in Classics, completing an undergraduate M.A. in Greek (2007-2011), and an M.Phil in Classics (2011-2013). My research was on ancient mechanical texts, focusing both on Heron of Alexandria's On Automaton-making and the small group of texts that deal with theoretical mechanics. I'm currently a PhD student in Computing Science at the University of Glasgow.

I'm the developer at Attic Inscriptions Online, which makes available the inscriptions of ancient Athens and Attica in English translation.
