About me

I am a scientific researcher working at the Medical Research Council’s Biostatistics Unit in Cambridge. I keep my full curriculum vitae relatively up-to-date at linkedin.com. Before working in academia, I wrote software and consulted on middleware systems for financial institutions worldwide.

In case you hadn’t guessed by now, I like mountains and ski-mountaineering. I also like to play chess (for Hackney Chess Club) which I do to a reasonable standard; I do some (mainly indoor) rock-climbing to a low standard; I play latin piano (only for my own amusement) and I play football. I live in North London with my beautiful wife and beautiful daughter.
