Short Bio

Last comments


I have spent more than a decade in economic and business development initiatives in South Africa. I was the commercial lead of open data projects at the Open Knowledge Foundation, and led the implementation of Edo State, Nigeria's first open data portal (a World Bank project), the Pakistan Education Data Portal for HTSPE (a DFID project) and numerous other open data projects around the world. Since 2016 I have led, an open data longitudinal study of commercial location data in England and Wales. I have also conducted research into open access and open data publishing on behalf of the World Bank, and barriers to technical proficiency in data science for the Public Health Research Data Forum.
