About me

I am a machine learning expert who enjoys building end to end systems. I am currently leading the development of the natural language processing (NLP) and anomaly detection product verticals at Abacus AI. Before Abacus, I was a technical co-founder at Qlearsite and I am currently their AI advisor.

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.

My work and side projects

Qlearsite launch a free organisational readiness survey in response to COVID-19.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic we launched a completely free organisational readiness survey for any company, worldwide. We used the same survey internally and quickly identified and understood pockets of our business that were less ready to work from home.

Qlearsite have been recognised by Gartner as a cool vendor.

We are thrilled to have been recognised by Gartner for being innovative, impactful and intriguing. Read more on our website.
