Employment History

Digital Forensic Analyst

Sussex Police
December 2013 — Present

I am currently employed by Sussex Police to examine and investigate digital mobile devices and to create report packages to a high standard with attention to detail, to be used in court as evidence.
In order to be more efficient and remove human error, I have automated certain parts of our daily processes using either python scripts, AutoHotKey scripts, or WPF applications with a .Net C# back end. All these tools log their actions in SQLite databases & log files for auditing purposes, in order to comply with our ongoing ISO 17025 accreditation, or connect to our case management system’s database in order to extract case information.
Working in a small team, excellent communication is essential to be able to adapt, learn and use each other’s knowledge to keep up with technology, and to share technical knowledge on the vast amounts of different mobile devices that we have to examine. Due to the fast pace nature of this industry we constantly have to balance our workload of examining devices, researching new devices and methods that come out in order to keep up to date and not miss time critical techniques.
I am also responsible for training users across the force to use self-service kiosks for basic mobile device extractions, and for training new starters within the office. The feedback given to me from previous training sessions has shown that I am able to explain technical information to new colleagues regardless of their skill level.

IT Support Technician

Baty International
October 2012 — November 2013

Whilst I was in my role I noticed that one of their systems was antiquated, therefore I took it upon myself to re-write and digitize our returns & repairs system. I did this with a program in C# in combination of a SQL server which enabled the whole team to view the data at the same time, this ultimately became more efficient and increased the productivity of the business.
