I am passionate about bringing a new age of transparent, inclusive and disintermediated finance. I believe that the tenets that underpin our financial system are changing. Identity, social and transactional data and monitoring are all changing beneath our credit driven money system. This has the potential to change the way that people relate to money and their finances.

I have spent the past two years focused on decentralised digital currencies. I designed a best in class AML solution for Bitcoin transactions, analysed economic incentives of Bitcoin miners and built a world class team of data and Bitcoin experts at Coinometrics.

Prior to running Coinometrics, I was a postgraduate economist at the University of Oxford. During this time I was the convenor of the Oxford Virtual Currencies Working Group, an interdisciplinary working group focussed on the economic and social implications of Virtual Currencies. I have also consulted senior government officials on the criminal use cases of Bitcoin and written extensively about the Bitcoin economy.

Aside from my work on Virtual Currencies, I was a research assistant to Professor Ian Goldin at the Oxford Martin School, writing reports and presentations on global megatrends. I was a Student Analyst at Vivid Economics, an environmental economics consultancy and has previously worked in the head office of Xstrata, a FTSE 100 mining company.
