Hi! Welcome to my personal website.
I’m passionate about open science and open source hardware, and how those two can be used to increase research and education reach around the world. I have a background in Neurosciences and have been developing affordable open science hardware and teaching others to do so via workshops, talks and outreach events.
Currently I work at the Department of Neurosciences in the University of Sussex, where I develop equipment to support research labs. For more details on those projects check the Open Sussex Neuroscience page
On my spare time I offer consultancy services around open science hardware through Prometheus Science. If you need to replicate a methods paper, or if you’d like something custom built for your lab, get in touch!

Developed for Dr. Eravci at the Mass Spectrometry unit, this 3D printed adapter is used to hold polyamide tubes in a pipette puller.
Webinar for the Open Science MOOC group. Starting theirs webinar series on open science and research improvement.
After work session with high school and college teachers. The main goals of the session were to start a dialogue and find collaborating opportunities. Could teachers use open source hardware to introduce more practical activities in STEM related curriculum?
I presented Flypi as an example on how researchers can leverage the open source movement, to build their own tools, update the design of existing ones, and how this can be used to help development.
Talk at the Rockefeller University in New York City, discussing issues with scientific hardware and how to update/upgrade them using open source technologies.
