Background

I am currently working in San Francisco at GuideSpark, originally being hired as part of the Silicon Valley Internship Programme. I joined as a Software Engineer and have since been promoted to a Data Engineer role, followed by a Data Scientist position.

This page details my skills and experience, and will be kept up to date with any side-projects I am working on.

I also completed a Udacity Data Analyst Nanodegree. I have discussed how it helped me transition into industry following a PhD on Medium.
