Our People: Alan Todd

Alan joined NCR in August 2018 and is currently working as a Build and Deployment Automation Engineer. He studied chemistry at Glasgow University before going on to do a PhD in X-ray crystallography at Reading University, following this he worked as part post doctoral researcher and part linux systems administrator in a Cancer Research UK research group.

After this he became as a full time linux systems administrator for an HPC facility in a scientific research environment where he found himself enjoying finding ways to automate things for himself and the users. This made moving to a devops build role a natural progression. Outside of work Alan enjoys running, hillwalking and exploring the sporting, and cultural activities that Edinburgh has to offer.
