Short Biography

I work as a Senior Research Software Engineer embedded in a research group in the University of Oxford's School of Geography and the Environment, the Oxford Programme for Sustainable Infrastructure Systems. I work closely with researchers on water, energy, transport and other infrastructure systems, developing simulation models, spatial data analysis and visualisations.

As part of my fellowship, I'm aiming to work with people interested in collaborative data maintenance, that is, working together to collect and maintain data - in particular, in this case, data about buildings and the built environment. I plan to link up with the Colouring London project, which started at University College London and is now based at the Alan Turing Institute as the Colouring Cities Research Programme.

I started out with a degree in English Literature and French and worked as a translator and web developer for a few years before studying part-time for a masters degree from the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis in University College London and starting to work as a research assistant and research software developer.
