Hello! I'm a public-interest technologist.
I am currently the director of the Centre for Public Data, a new non-partisan research and advocacy organisation. We work to strengthen data provisions in policy, and campaign to fill gaps in important public datasets.
Before that, I was chief product officer and senior developer at Flourish, a successful British data visualisation startup.
Before that, I was the founding technical director at the University of Oxford's DataLab, which uses data to help doctors make better decisions.

As a freelance developer from 2009-2015, I worked with large companies, non-profits, government and startups. Corporate clients included Marks & Spencer, RAND and Morgan Stanley. Startup clients included Axon, Nestoria, ElasticHosts (later acquired). Non-profit clients included Greenpeace and the Government Digital Service.
I have an MPhil in computer science from Cambridge, specialising in natural language processing. I worked in finance before becoming a developer. Find me on Twitter, LinkedIn, GitHub, or drop me a line: [email protected].
