About me

I am a machine learning expert who enjoys building end to end systems. Most recently I was the VP of Product at Abacus AI after having led the development of their natural language processing products. Before Abacus, I was a technical co-founder of Qlearsite and I am currently a technical advisor to Qlearsite and Deepwalk.

I completed my PhD at the Machine Learning Group, University of Cambridge working with Zoubin Ghahramani. My research ultimately focused on the automation of machine learning model construction and the rational allocation of computational resources when building models.

Before my PhD I was a management consultant at the Boston Consulting Group and before that I received a B.A. in mathematics and M.Phil in Statistics from the University of Cambridge.
