Software developer | Data scientist


I develop software and play with data. I have a history in academia working in bioinformatics, I have several first-authorship and co-authorship publications across multiple fields in the life sciences. I now work as a professional software developer and I’m currently working within Ericsson’s 5G Cloud Packet Core, Gothenburg, Sweden.

Prior to this position, I was a post-doc in the Antonelli Lab at the University of Gothenburg, working on pipelines in R for phylogenetic analysis. As part of this work I converted the program SUPERSMART into a series of smaller packages in R – a project called “supersmartR”.

I did my PhD at Imperial College London and the Zoological Society of London where I re-appraised the “living fossil” concept.

I particularly enjoy developing software and have created a range of open-source R and python packages for munging and analysing biological data (from DNA to species records).
