About me

I'm a freelance data scientist and researcher, specialising in data for, by and about charities and wider civil society. I have over ten years experience working with charity data, having worked for NCVO, CAST and the Greater London Authority.

How I can help you

Data analysis and visualisation

I'm an experienced data analyst, turning messy raw data into actionable intelligence that answers the questions you are asking. The answers you will get will be clear, concise and produced to high visual standards to help you get your message across.

Data cleaning and linking

I can help turn your messy spreadsheets into perfectly formed clean data, linked to other relevant data to help get the most out of your data. This is not just about one-off cleaning, but building the processes and tools to automate data cleaning and make sure you get clean data all the time.

Building data tools

Data is most powerful when it's combined with tools that help collect, use, analyse and explore it. I can help you build tools using the latest web technologies to do all these, whether it's extracting data from paper forms, combining big datasets into one or designing front ends for users to explore the data.

Open data and open standards

I'm passionate about the difference that open data can make for charities. I can help you use and publish open data, making the most out of this valuable resource whilst avoiding the pitfalls. I can also help you use data standards to ensure that your data is compatible with other datasets, so you can get the full benefits.
