I am a data engineer with a strong interest in machine learning, distributed computing, and data management.  Throughout my career, I have worked with collaborations of users to extract, manage, and analyse data from sources including CERN’s Large Hadron Collider, schools, hospitals, and the International Space Station.

A former particle physicist, I worked on the search for dark matter in the first proton-proton collisions at the LHC.  I have now turned my attention to the grey (and white) matter of the human brain, using machine learning and distributed computing techniques to mine data from very large datasets of MRI scans.
