I'm currently a Data Scientist at Nested, a property technology company in London. My work is focussed on improving the accuracy of our automatic home valuation tool. In my free time I write about science, technology, policy, and where they intersect. I also work on some other sweet projects!
In July 2016 I graduated from Oriel College, Oxford with a B.A. (Hons.) in Physics. Outside of academics, I was president of Oriel's debate society, an editor of Oriel's newspaper, as well as Secretary of the Oxford University Space and Astronomy Society.
After graduation, I interned at a financial technology company in London before moving to Madrid for a research placement at the European Space Agency (ESA). My research focussed on applying machine learning techniques to the study of star and planet formation. A summary of my work, New Member Candidates of Upper Scorpius from Gaia DR1, has been accepted for publication in the journal Astronomy and Astrophysics.
After finishing at ESA, I moved to DC to intern for Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL). My work focussed on policy issues in science and technology, healthcare, and criminal justice reform. I also developed tools to help track the progress of legislation through Congress. My first time in DC was as a Data Science Intern at NASA, where I studied how people collaborate at hackathons. They also let me into the Mission Control Center once!
