Hi, I'm Yusuf.
I’m a software engineer passionate about all things technology.
I'm the co-creator of Terminal, a tool which makes it easy to inspect and debug webhooks.
I've also founded dailyphysicsproblem.com, a service which helps high-school students prepare for physics interviews at top universities.
Previously, I spent some time as a patent lawyer where I helped prosecute UK and European patent applications related to computing and electronic devices. Some of the technologies I worked on include charging circuits for EVs, software-defined networking (SDN), and distributed databases.
I've also conducted research into the orbital dynamics of planetary remnants around white dwarfs, which was published by the Royal Astronomical Society. I was awarded the Seymour prize for my work.
Here are some of the projects I've worked on:

Orbit decay of 2–100 au planetary remnants around white dwarfs with no gravitational assistance from planets

When I'm not playing with code, you can find me cycling or travelling. I've cycled over 1000 miles across Europe.
And visited over 30 countries.
I also occasionally write poetry (when I'm in a particular reflective mood).
I love to write and share my learnings in public. On my blog, you can expect to find posts about my experiences becoming a software developer, as well as my thoughts on the latest developments in the tech industry.
If that sounds interesting, consider subscribing to my newsletter, Exposition, where I share one deep dive into an important technical topic every Saturday morning.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact me.
