Short presentation

I am an Associate Professor (Docent) of Information Systems. I am interested in infrastructures to support data-intensive research and data science, in particular in finding better ways to make all research more rigorous by applying scientific methods, machine learning, and other techniques. I have spent the last 10 years working on data infrastructures for the life sciences.

I am an Associate Professor (Docent) of Information Systems in the Department of Informatics and Media.

Previously I was a Senior Researcher in the University of Oxford's Department of Engineering Science and a Junior Research Fellow at Kellogg College, Oxford. I have previously held research posts in the Data Science Institute at Imperial College London and in the Department of Computer Science at Oxford, and have been a consultant for the United Nations advising on big data and data science.

I was awarded a PhD in Computer Science from the University Reading, UK, in 2010 for my work on peer-to-peer (P2P) collaborative software in limited capability mobile phones.

I lead the following courses:

  • 2IS063 Data Mining and Data Science (Bachelors)
  • 2IS073 Digital Infrastructure (Masters)
  • 2IS077 Big Data Analytics (Masters)
