This is the bit of the site where I tell the world a little bit about myself, presumably in order for you to be able to steal my identity and obtain major credit cards, that sort of thing. Anyway, I'm a 27-year-old ex-PhD student living in Cambridge (the real one, not the one near Boston. Well, quite near Boston, Lincs, but nowhere near Boston, Massachusetts).

I did my PhD in Computer Science at the Univeristy of Cambridge Computer Laboratory, on end-user programming in a ubiquitous computing setting - it involves bits of HCI, Programming Language Design, Psychology and Systems Stuff, and I could bore you to tears with the details. But I won't. In any case, I've now finished, and at some point I'll get round to putting my thesis here.

Since finishing writing up last year, I've been working for Azuro, a small EDA startup in Cambridge.



November 2001, I took part in National Novel Writing Month, and attempted to write a 50,000 word work of fiction in a month. To everyone's surprise, not least my own, I managed it; you can read more about it (and, if you're so inclined, read the "novel" itself) here.

Obligatory Photo

The law says that every homepage has to have a bad photo on it. So here it is. (Actually, this photo isn't nearly as bad as the one that used to be here. And I think that using the term "homepage" seriously shows my age. But anyway.)

A Photo of Rob Hague

(Just in case you've not got the message yet, because you're, say, a robot, then this is a photograph of Rob Hague, and this is a bigger photograph of Rob Hague. There. That should stop a certain image search only returning pictures of my Active Bat.)

Curriculum Vitae


I'm not currently in the market for a job, but here's my CV in any case. It's a little out of date, as I've not revised it since finishing my PhD and starting at Azuro.

  • My CV, in PDF format
  • My CV, in (shudder) Word format

The former is preferred, as I almost certainly have a different combination of software and fonts from you - this means that the Word version is unlikely to look the way I intended it, but the PDF version will be fine.

I just typed in my name while trying to customize Firefox's search behaviour, and it seems that I'm no longer the internet's number one source of Rob Hague related information! This site is only the second hit in Google. Some other Rob Hague in Australia has taken the crown. I'll have to think of some way I can regain my Number 1 status, which might be tricky as my eponymous nemesis has actual content that people may want to look at, as opposed to just a random bunch of stuff and pictures of disected chocolates. That's just not playing the game.

Ring my friend, I said you'd call

As of about 4:20 yesterday, I am now sufficiently qualified to manage a Kwikimart. Woohoo!

Added CV


As I'm looking for a job at the moment (as well as writing up, which is why I've not done anything to the site for a while), I've added my CV to my homepage. Enjoy.
