I like to make science open.

In my day job, I'm the Executive Director of Open Life Science, a non-profit mentoring and training company dedicated to building a global network of open research ambassadors.

Prior to this, I was Open Source Technology Lead at the Wellcome Trust, and before that 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 one big side project

  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. Currently in my final year 😱.

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.
