George is Head of Data Science in Nesta’s Data Analytics Practice.

He works alongside a team of data scientists who contribute to Nesta’s missions through research and development, using methods such as machine learning, natural language processing and network science.

Prior to working at Nesta, George studied at Imperial College London and worked on data science projects spanning solar energy, homelessness and humanitarian crisis monitoring. He has also been a bicycle mechanic. He is interested in the ways that society and innovation shape each other and how that relationship can influence the transition to a just and ecological future.
