Abseiling in Imtahleb


It was a chilly Sunday morning, we met at the Roman Villa, Rabat then headed off to Imtahleb. Roberto and myself secured the ropes, descended slowly to check the terrain and arrange the ropes. All was set and we descended a few more times! Really enjoyed it! First using the double-stop-descender, then a couple of times using figure of eights. Lastly we raced down the slope before we called it a day!

I am a Data & Software Consultant from Malta with a specialisation in Business Intelligence & Data Mining. Currently, a senior lecturer and software developer at MCAST focusing on Databases, Business Intelligence and Applied Computational Intelligence modules at degree level. As a developer, I have been working on the development of a management information system together in a small team using PostgreSQL, Spring, Jira, Confluence, Git, amongst other tools. My first degree was a B.Sc.(Hons.) at the University of Malta then I graduated at De Montfort University in M.Sc. Business Intelligence Systems and Data Mining where I was recognised with the Best Student and Best Project awards. My postgraduate research was then presented and published in an IEEE conference in Berlin in 2016. During my free time, I try to find a balance between photography, diving, guitar playing and an occasional camping or walk in the countryside.
