About me
Data Science Community and Engagement Manager at the Office for National Statistics. I am interested in the ways in which data science and AI provide insights to decision-makers and the societal effects. I curate spaces for the community of practice within government to share and connect on data science projects and delivery in the public sector e.g annual conference to our quarterly community meetups. I volunteer with Brixton Soup Kitchen, by using my digital skills to support their website design and website content. I also hosted an event called my futures to inspire young people from my old youth club by bringing in role models in sports, tech, charity and more. You can sometimes find me in Waterstones with my friends, delving into a beautiful book for our book club.
