1st Dec 2019

Research summary

I am interested in biological image processing and analysis, skeletal biology, and improving researchers' user experience when working with research software. 

Teaching summary

I contribute to the "Research Software Engineering with Python" course by writing material, and teaching and facilitating classes.


Having originally trained as a Computational Scientist, I completed an interdisciplinary PhD spanning evolutionary biology, image processing and architecture after a brief stint modelling heart disease. Before I joined UCL in 2019, I spent two years as a post-doc writing software to analyse medical images of healthy and diseased bones.
