I’m interested in science, research, education, and technology — particularly relating to computer programming, data analysis, visualisation, and reproducibility.
I work as a Research Data Specialist in the Melbourne Data Analytics Platform (MDAP) at the University of Melbourne in Australia.
My background is as a researcher in the area of perception (vision and hearing; see my research) and as a teacher of perception and of research skills. Please see my academic CV for further details.
I update a few notes on what I’m listening to, reading, and thinking about each month. I enjoy running and usually get out for a run a few times a week.
Here are some posts that I have written on various topics of interest:
