Zen Harper, PhD
Senior Software Engineer
The work at Monumo has great commercial and environmental importance, and the projects are very challenging. I have wide ranging mathematical and scientific interests, and there are opportunities to use, research and learn more about many topics: in both pure and applied mathematics, including numerical optimisation, computation and algorithms; some physics, and engineering. I'm excited to experience a startup atmosphere and have a big impact in the early stages of projects.
Originally from Bristol, Zen completed his mathematics undergraduate and masters degrees at Trinity College, Cambridge University, and his PhD at Leeds University. Zen has published five research papers in top journals and did university lecturing, postdoctoral research, and teaching in Thailand and China, but then returned to England to move into commercial software jobs. He has been working in commercial software companies since 2013.
