About me

I am...


Socio-Technological

Systems Engineer

I am a data scientist, data engineer and AI practitioner with expertise in modern (scalable) deep learning, data pipelines, knowledge graphs and reasoning systems. I have a broad background in Anthropology, Economics and Computational Social Science and I'm keen to apply my skills to societally relevant problems.

What I'm working on

CollectiWise

Ponder the big issues; climate change, species extinctions, financial crises, famines etc. All of them have in common that they are human failures; a small number of humans make decisions that have tragic consequences for large numbers. The solution is collective intelligence.
