About Ferenc Igali

Ferenc Igali is the Senior Psychology Technician in College of Social Science. I have worked for a number of departments within the University, including the Lincoln Performing Arts Centre, the Lincoln School of Performing and Fine Art, the Student Ambassadors, as a Research Assistant and as a writer for Bullet Magazine. I also worked as a volunteer on several projects, including the first iteration of the Student Buddy system, the Frequency Festival, have created media for both departments (as a short commercial/advert) and students (campaign videos, and other assorted media) as well as media for visiting companies or for student productions that have gone to places such as Edinburgh’s Fringe Festival. I have created 3d models/scenes/flyovers for different productions. I work and consult a number of exterior projects, and participate internally across a range of research within the Psychology Department. My main interests lies within the field of cinema and within psychophysics/neuropsychology, which is something I am hoping to combine in research. I consult on external projects by offering advice and guidance in a range of technical implementations and designs of software as well as helping build a bridge between end users and software designers. I have extensive experience in many ranges of media, and worked on a plethora of different consultancy projects - ranging from animation design to experimental software written in Python to sporting goods websites - running the gamut on anything ‘technical’. I also have limited experience in subjects such as designing with Unity, for the Oculus Rift, building eyetrackers, and engage with a number of open source projects. I also second shoot in my spare time for weddings and other events - both video and photography. I also score music within my limited knowledge for montages, remixes and for the event videography that I do. I have consulted on a number of student theatre productions, local filming and external company events (such as helping design a projection map for 3d projecting). I have also helped build a number of custom computer and equipment builds, ranging from research to high end gaming/computing rigs. I am a full stack developer - comfortable in both the LAMP and the newer MEAN stack, experienced in everything from relational database design and a range of back-end languages such as PHP, MySQL, and other aspects of development such as using object modelling like Mongoose. I am confident with front end technical aspects such as HTML, CSS and JS (and having used the MEAN stack, I am a regular user of Node.js as well).
