Experienced technology and strategy leader, with a track record of delivering innovative data, analytics and AI projects and products. Record of leading complex multi-disciplinary programmes and building world-class teams of fantastic people.
I’ve worked with cutting edge technologies throughout my career, including as Director Artificial Intelligence for Deloitte, leading IBM Watson Health in Europe, and in my current position as Head of Healthcare Data Science and Strategic Programme Delivery at Amazon Web Services. I help customers understand the potential of innovative new technologies for data driven transformation, develop strategies and roadmaps for projects and products, and work with leaders and organisations to design and implement digital technologies to achieve real-world outcomes. Alongside this I work with AWS engineers to develop new products and solutions for our customers across the world.
Recent projects include development of national data and analytics strategies, deployment of automated patient referrals triage using Machine Learning models, implementation of chatbots to support shared services and the use of AI to automate patient data processing, combined with broader public sector experience including international governments and NGOs, for example the application of AI and other emerging technologies for policy development and provision of public services.
I also have significant cross-sector experience, for example telecommunications (including customer facing technologies such as Chatbots), financial services (AI-powered App development) and retail (customer journey development, chatbots), and a strong academic record, including a PhD in Biological Sciences from Imperial College London.
