I'm a researcher working on the COPO (Collaborative Open Plant Omics) platform; a tool for creating, depositing and searching for bundles of research objects. 

I hold a First Class Honours degree in Computer Science and gained my PhD from the University of East Anglia in 2015, studying facial animation, computer graphics, signal processing and machine learning. 

My current interests are in the fields of data science, open source and how to apply machine learning techniques in these areas to improve the tools available to researchers. I have industry experience working as a web developer in several start-ups and three years experience teaching to undergraduate level.
