Short presentation

I recently joined Uppsala University as a Senior Lecturer of Information Systems.

I am interested in software and data infrastructures to support data-intensive research and data science, in particular in finding better ways to make all research more rigorous by applying scientific methods and other techniques. I have spent the last 10 years working on infrastructures for the life sciences.

My courses


I am a Senior Lecturer of Information Systems in the Department of Informatics and Media.

Until recently I was a Senior Researcher in the University of Oxford's Department of Engineering Science and a Junior Research Fellow at Kellogg College, Oxford. I have previously held research posts in the Data Science Institute at Imperial College London and in the Department of Computer Science at Oxford, and have been a consultant for the United Nations advising on big data and data science.

I was awarded a PhD in Computer Science from the University Reading, UK, in 2010 for my work on peer-to-peer (P2P) collaborative software in limited capability mobile phones.
