I am a software engineer at the Bennett Institute, working on OpenSAFELY.
I have been building things with python for a good while, with a focus on infrastructure and tooling. A long time Linux user, I previously worked at Canonical on Ubuntu for 9 years.
An even longer time ago I did a PhD in AI cloud scheduling, which explains why you might see me drinking a lot.
OpenSAFELY is a secure, transparent, open-source platform, built in Python, in response to the COVID pandemic. It provides almost real-time analysis of millions of electronic health records. We will discuss privacy, security and research goals achieved by a cross-disciplinary team of researchers, epidemiologists and developers working together.
