I currently work for the Wellcome Trust, UK's largest charitable foundation, delivering data science tools to facilitate grant making and impact analysis. I am also chapter leader for Datakind UK, a volunteer-led organisation using data in the service of humanity, chairing their monthly meetings on Scoping & Impact assessment.
Prior to that, I was in charge of an award-winning knowledge transfer partnership program on machine learning and computer vision between the University of Essex and London start-up Filament AI, and was a research associate at Imperial College London.
I hold a PhD in Applied Mathematics, a Chartered Management Institute Certification (Level 5) in Management and Leadership, a Google Cloud Engineer certification (2019), as well as a number of formal specialisations in cloud computing and deep learning.
I am a fellow of Science 2 Data Science and an Associate Member (AMIMA) of the Institute of Mathematics & Its Applications.
I occasionally have the bandwidth to provide services for small organisations during out-of-office hours. This generally includes advice on prospective data science projets and exploratory feasibility studies.
Get in touch for a coffee ☕ if this sounds like you.
I contribute to a number of open source software repositories, and I strongly believe in funding for basic research, especially Mathematics. Outside work, I am interested in modern art, languages, and minimalistic classic piano (playing & listening).
As a researcher, I have held several positions in a number of countries, such as 🇧🇷, 🇪🇸, 🇺🇸, 🇨🇭, 🇫🇷, and 🇬🇧. You might be familiar with my old website, not updated anymore.
