Personal profile

Research interests

Senior Data Scientist at the Jean Golding Institute, the central hub for data science and data-intensive research at the University of Bristol. I manage the team of data scientists at the institute as well as working on my own data science projects.

Current interests include urban analytics: data collected by electric micromobility, air quality data, monitoring infrastructure and understanding the vulnerability of people and infrastructure to the effects of climate change. I also have expertise in domestic energy use and low carbon heating technologies. I work with researchers across multiple disciplines including Science and Engineering and Humanities. External stakeholders include industry, government and the third sector. I co-organise the Bristol DataViz Group and co-designed the DataFace training programme for schools as part of the Cheltenham Science Festival.
