We sense a future in which next generation human development outcomes and human-nature mutuality are co-created with and augmented by advances in technology and communications.
Founder of Human.dev- human with two wonderful daughters and a dog. Shaping analysis at the intersection between human development, technology and communications. Social impact strategist with a career that spans the BBC, the United Nations and the LEGO Foundation focused on the science of learning, early child development and 'parenting upgrade potential'.

I hope to contribute towards holistic human and ecological health. My interdisciplinary research interests lean towards: Media Ecology, Network Science, Topological Design, Ecology, Mental Health, and Early Child Development. I am inspired by nature (forest research and re-wilding/conservation biology) and improvisational jazz music (flow state psychology and community structure) as metaphorical vehicles to catalyse the internet’s great potential towards a new (maybe) ‘digital renaissance’.
I have a keen interest in brain development and the neuroscience behind modern parenting. I currently work at the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology in their genetics department. During my Psychology (BSc) degree, I co-founded Coventry University’s Philosophy society and worked as Senior Editorial Assistant at The European Journal of Counselling Psychology. I specialised in neurodevelopment and neurodegeneration during my Neuroscience (MSc) degree. Now working as a Project Collaborator at Human.dev on Modern Parenting, Intrinsic Motivation and Early Child Development
