I am Arup’s digital skill leader in the Americas.
The scale of data saturation in today's technology systems make automation and machine learning indispensable. I promote the firm’s creation, development and adoption of these tools across engineering and consulting disciplines. I also travel globally within Arup to grow our coding skills and share best practice.
My background is in coding and web development focused on creating rich user experiences for cultural, government and retail enterprises. I have designed data solutions for large-scale urban projects and delivered enterprise-wide data integration projects in real estate and facilities management. My projects all share a belief in the importance of sustainability. Arup’s culture and commitment to shape a better world reflect my own values. I choose to work on projects that make a clear contribution to the UN’s sustainable development goals. My current research work is exploring the ability of agent-based modelling techniques to transform urban planning and hospital design.
My work has won several international awards, from the American Airlines Wearable World hackathon (winner, 2014) to a Webby Award (2013) and Creativity International Award (2013). I publish on coding (Wiley WROX and New York Times magazine). I have given talks at NYU, Penn State and Ball State – where I was a design fellow – and virtual conferences run by nmc.org, the University of Kentucky and others.
