My interests lie in artificial intelligence, and more specifically in the applications of AI to everyday problems. Following a BSc degree in computer science at the University of Durham, I studied for an MSc in applied AI at the Universities of Aberdeen and Paris (V), and went on to complete a doctorate at the University of Bath, where I investigated the role of AI in engineering design.

I worked for over a decade in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh, combining academic research with technology transfer consultancy. Later I worked at Lancaster University as a business technology project manager, before joining CATCH in 2015 as a translational research associate.

During my career I've worked with clients and colleagues from a variety of sectors to develop and implement practical solutions to difficult problems. I have authored over 50 academic papers of variable quality across a range of fields.
