Principal Data Scientist

Research Interests

I'm broadly interested in how machine learning can be used to drive decarbonisation within the energy sector.

Short Bio

I'm currently employed as a Principal Data Scientist at National Grid. Prior to this, I took a career break to travel the world, carbon neutral. From 2019-2022, I was a Staff Data Scientist at Bulb, where I joined Bulb's mission to lower energy bills and carbon emissions. From 2016-2019, I worked as a data scientist at Hive, where I developed products to help energy customers understand their smart meter data, detect water leaks in their homes, and look after their elderly relatives. From 2010-2015, I completed a two year post-doctoral research fellowship and PhD at the University of Southampton. During this time, I published a number of papers which have been cited thousands of times and achieved an h-index of 14. I've also had one patent granted, and have a further 3 patent applications filed.
