I’ve kept a real handwritten diary for a few years now; I once overheard a girl on a bus asking her friend if she knew any way of writing a completely personal blog that nobody else on the internet could read, and I resolved there and then to write a diary as a small act of Luddite bloody-mindedness.

Then again, a private diary doesn’t have a CTRL+F function or an internet connection.

I did my PhD in the neuroscience of language at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. I now work in industry, turning numbers into pictures for The Information Lab in London, the UK. At the moment, I’m splitting my time between London and a client in San Diego, and will happily go for a beer in a new pub in either city.

This blog is about data preparation, data visualisation, and whatever else crops up in the course of my data work. This blog used to be about my research on sound-symbolism and synaesthesia, and also about my thoughts on wider issues within language research and academia in general, and all that is still archived on here.
