About Savi Maharaj

I grew up in Trinidad and Tobago, where I graduated with a BSc in Maths and Computer Science from the University of the West Indies. After a short (but sufficient!) stint as a COBOL programmer, I came to Scotland where I did MSc and PhD degrees in Computer Science at the University of Edinburgh. My PhD was partly funded through summer jobs at what was then called AT&T Bell Labs, where I worked within an exciting research department which, sadly, no longer exists. After the PhD (phew!) I spent a year on an ERCIM fellowship which allowed me to visit the CROAP group at INRIA in France and the Department for Computation and Information at RAL in England. I then returned to Scotland to become a lecturer at the University of Stirling.

I am married to Neil and we have two children, Sharda and Jamie.
