I’m interested in observation and slow looking as ways to understand the world. I love photography, drawing, science and statistics; all these approaches are powerful ways to investigate and appreciate life.

I’ve worked as both a statistician and policy generalist on a range of social and environmental issues including taxation, flood management, renewable energy legislation, transgender equality and the Brexit negotiations on fisheries. In 2015 was awarded the British Empire Medal for my work on gender equality in Whitehall. CV here.

In 2019 I ran an art project with civil servants designed to use observation and looking to build awareness of the diversity of UK commercial fish species – find out more here.

I am a Fellow of the wonderful Linnean Society of London.
