A Research Software Engineer and part-time PhD candidate at The Open University with experience of working in both industry and academia.

My current position involves working with academics and building software used in studies involving the collection, collation and processing of participant data. This has required building a highly agile and configurable system that interacts with several health fitness services and devices.

My interests are in wearable and ubiquitous computing. Specifically how the collection of personal data can improve health and financial well-being and the privacy pitfalls.

My PhD is on the topic of Inverse Privacy; what third parties know about you that you don’t.

In my free time I like to play guitar, cook, bake, program and powerlifting. I’m an avid “quantified-selfer” and enjoy mining the data that I collect about myself with the purpose of self-improvement.
