I am a research software engineer at Invenia Labs (Cambridge, UK). I help researchers use machine learning, constrained optimization, and generally tools from the technical computing domain to optimize the power grid. I get to do all the best parts of being a software developer and all the best parts of being a researcher, its great. I am a long-term contributor to the open-source JuliaLang ecosystem. I am passionate about building the tools to do research better.
I officially completed my PhD on natural language processing (NLP) via machine learning (ML) at the Univerity of Western Autralia in 2019; supervised by Prof Roberto Togneri, Dr Wei Liu and W/Prof Mohammed Bennamoun.
