About Me

Hello!  I am an applied Machine Learning researcher at Twitter Cortex, San Francisco where I work on improving the public conversation. Previously, I completed my DPhil at the University of Oxford in the AIMS Centre for Doctoral Training, supervised by M. Pawan Kumar and Yee Whye Teh.

I believe in the power of technology and entrepreneurship to solve the world’s most pressing challenges and look to apply to these my expertise in Bayesian Statistics, Deep Learning, Probabilistic Programming, and Causal Inference.

Outside of my academic interests, I enjoy studying Latin, modelling with Autodesk Fusion 360, digital fabrication, and practicing phototography.
