I am a creative problem solver with 10 years of experience in academic research, technical leadership and data science
plus 9 years of increasing responsibilities in teaching and team building.
Naturally curious, I love finding meaning in data.
I have a PhD in particle physics, with six years postdoctoral experience analysing data. I also have experience working in industry, including Price Waterhouse, GEC and the Australian Broadcasting Company. I am currently working as a data science consultant, applying my technical and communication skills to real world data.
I have the ability to work independently and manage time effectively in order to contribute to several projects in parallel. I have ten years of experience working in an international collaboration. I enjoy asking questions and finding solutions.
