I design and build software tools for biologists, with a focus on drug discovery and genomics at Palantir. Scientists are working to find drugs for big diseases such as cancer and malaria; good software is an important lever in making this process significantly better.
Before that, I was an early employee at GoCardless, a global payments company that is funded by Y Combinator, Google Ventures and others, and helped grow it from a small startup to an international company with hundreds of employees globally. For a brief period, I was an economic researcher at the Bank of England, focusing on housing.
I grew up in the UK and studied Philosophy, Politics & Economics at Oxford. I currently live in New York City, but also spend a significant amount of time in Washington DC.
