My research interests are in machine learning, computer vision and data science, and particularly in the use of these in developing countries to address problems in health, agriculture, resource allocation and sustainability. For more information see the site of the Artificial Intelligence in the Developing World (AI-DEV) group, which I coordinate.

As of December 2013, my main appointment is as a Data Scientist at the new United Nations Global Pulse lab in Kampala; I also have academic positions as a Senior Lecturer at the College of Computing and Information Sciences, Makerere University, and as a Visiting Lecturer in Computer Science at the University of Sheffield.
