My background is in both data science and business. I previously worked as a Lead Data Scientist at BCG and have a PhD in Particle Physics from Imperial College London. I have nine years experience of applying machine learning techniques to large amounts of data, enabling companies to make informed decisions and scientists to make world-first measurements.

I'm passionate about data science for social good. I volunteer with DataKind, at their Office Hours and DataDives, to help social change organisations make better use of their data. I have also worked with Data Science for Social Good.
