Summary

I’ve always been driven by a passion for innovation and discovery, and my work has inevitably been shaped by this — and my insatiable curiosity. I’ve been fortunate to have been involved with and contributed to some of the most interesting (for me at least!) research and commercial ventures of today. 

I have experience working with and implementing a wide range of machine learning technologies including Bayesian Networks (e.g. Naive Bayes, discrete Dynamic Bayesian Nets, Kalman Filters, & HMMs), Markov Networks (CRFs, MRFs), Neural Networks (e.g. feedforward, autoencoders, echo state networks), SVMs and various assorted unsupervised and statistical modelling techniques. I have an extensive academic background in mathematically demanding fields.

I’m also an experienced programmer, with experience developing software in a research context in Python and C++. I am comfortable with other languages including C and MATLAB. I’m particularly experienced in scientific programming tasks such as data analysis, data visualisation and process simulation. I’m also comfortable with the usual web development languages (the usual HTML, CSS, JS), as well as the Django Python web framework and data visualisation libraries including D3.js.

Experience
