Hello, A little bit about me.
My name is Robert Shahin Nikjoo
I am 50 years old,
born in Iran,
a British citizen, currently residing in London.
I have skills in Accountancy, and am part qualified CIMA candidate, and have worked as an accounts assistant for 2 years.
I have skills in programming, and have worked as a programmer for 5 years
I have also worked as a pharmacy dispenser, as an English language tutor, and also in casual jobs.
I am a Bahai
I am interested in current affairs. My music interests are eclectic.
I was born in Iran, and spent my first ten years there. I was born into the kingdom of Iran, and left 1 year after the islamic revolution of 1979.
After the khomeini revolution I migrated to Britain. I spent my adolescent, teenage and university years in East coast Scotland.
I spent 5 years working in the city of London as a programmer, working for investment banks.
I spent 3 years working in my brothers pharmacy as a dispenser.
I spent 3 years travelling in west europe, and spent 8 years in Kiev, Ukraine, where I worked as an English language tutor.
I spent 1 year living in an orthodox monastery in Kiev.
I returned to Britain in the year 2014. I worked in a pharmacy for 3 years, and spent 2 years working as an accounts assistant.
I also started my CIMA studies, and am currently 3/4 of the way through the CIMA exams.
I have many years of work experience under my belt.
I have worked as:
English as a foreign language tutor
Currently I am studying for my CIMA exams. I hope to complete the exams by end of 2021 or beginning of 2022.
I am also updating my computing skills, by studying C# and Python languages. I worked as a vba-sql developer for 5 years.
I am also developing a small software portfolio (websites, games,apps). Please view by pressing button 'software'
After working and studying I have very little time left for interests.
In my spare time I:
study CIMA accountancy
listen to music
read the economist magazine
Anything related to the Bahai religion
As mentioned, I am currently studying for CIMA exams. I have passed 12 CIMA exams so far (as of 12/06/2021). There are 16 exams altogether and I have 4 more exams to pass.
CIMA stands for 'Chartered Institute of Management Accountants'.
It is the largest body of Management Accountants worldwide.
I also study programming so I as to update my skills. I used to be a programmer 20 years ago. Currently I am looking at c# & python.
I am specially interested in the python libraries 'biopython' & 'tensorflow'
However it takes a long time to master these libraries and I am extremely short of time.
I am also interested in Bioinformatics. This is a new science which did not exist 20 years ago. It is the application of computing power
to biological problems, specifically dna sequencing. I have an interest in this field as I am (was) a computer programmer and my degree
(30 years ago) was in the Biomedical field.
AFAIK the library biopython is very useful for work in this area.
Currently I have bought a Udemy course in Biopython, which Im going through slowly, time permitting.
I also subscribe to the magazine "Economist", which I read every week, when I have time. I find it to be quite comprehensive, and
it often goes indepth into various issues it reports on.
My music taste is eclectic. I must be getting old, because half of the musicians I listen to have died. I specially like 80s pop,
the decade during which I spent my teenage years. Amongst the musicians I listen to are Lara Fabian and Hayedeh, who passed away
30 years ago.
As mentioned, I am a Bahai, my messiah is Bahaullah, and I am interested in anything Bahai.
As I am currently seeking employment (as of 19/12/20) you can phone or email me if you have a vacancy.
Software I have a small & growing library of software Ive developed for clients to view.
The software falls into 3 categories: Websites, games, apps
