I like to make science open.

In my day job, I'm an Open Source Technical Lead in the Data for Science and Health priority area at the Wellcome Trust. Practically speaking, I look for ways to utilise Wellcome's influence to make science (and research in general) more reproducible and available to all.

Prior to this, I was an open source research software engineer and community manager at InterMine, based at the Department of Genetics at the University of Cambridge. Browse my CV.

Outside of work, I have two big focuses

  1. My EngD degree with the University of Manchester, with a focus on human aspects of software from a life science perspective - see current projects and recent reading at omgscience.co.uk
  2. Open Life Science - helping the open-science-curious become active open science ambassadors through a 16 week mentoring and training program.

In a pre-pandemic world I used to run and bike a lot; I'm looking forward to taking that back up when it's safe to be around other humans again.
