I’m a data scientist working at the University of Oxford, working in the University’s Big Data Institute, leading data science projects with a focus on public health, diet, nutrition and non-communicable diseases (NCDs), such as diabetes and heart disease. I am working on two projects that I created based on supermarket shopping, foodDB and shopSmarter, which help to monitor state and changes in the food marketplace in the UK, help people to shop healthier, and measure health (and other) outcomes. I also founded Digital Health Oxford, a community of over 1500 researchers, doctors, nurses, engineers, designers, entrepreneurs and others with an interest in health technology, and co-founder of TheHill, a health tech innovation lab in collaboration with Oxford University Hospitals and the Oxford universities. More generally, I’m excited by the power of data and technology to solve complex problems and develop new insights, passionate about using tech for good, multi-disciplinary collaborations, and about bringing the best of the tech world to academia. Other interests are health-tech, sustainability, software engineering, open source, statistics, machine learning, AI, decentralisation, blockchain, molecular biology, genomics, creating teams and communities, and citizen science.
