About

I am currently R&D lead at Faculty. At the moment our R&D team is particularly interested in AI safety. I originally joined Faculty as a data scientist. We work with a number of clients across many different industries on machine learning and data science problems. A couple of projects I've worked on include:

  • A tool for detecting terrorist propaganda online using machine learning algorithms, built for the UK Home Office. Read about it here.
  • A media monitoring application for Amnesty International. Read about it here or watch me talk about it.

Previously I studied for a PhD in mathematics at the University of Cambridge under the joint supervision of Prof. Neshan Wickramasekera and Prof. Felix Schulze. You can read more about what I worked on on my maths page.

I like coding in my spare time and contributing to open source projects. You can see some of the things I work on on my code page.
