About me

I’m generally interested in data science, machine learning and optimisation; I like telling stories with data, working with statistical models and designing algorithms. This site is a place to share projects or interesting things I’ve come across.

Previously, I worked at the university of Trinity College, Dublin. Before that, I was a PhD student at the University of Toronto, where my advisor was the incredible Ragnar-Olaf Buchweitz. Today, I work in Montréal where I reside with my partner and split my time between code, stats and mathematics.
