About

I go by Nikete, a nickname that stuck, in everything but the most formal of documents.

I run a small consultancy, Amurado Research OU, focused on bringing tools form machine learning, causal inference, and the social sciences to worhty projects. I am also a research affiliate of the Laboratory for Computational Physiology at MIT, where I try to design better algorithms and mechanisms for finding which treatments work for whom when.

Broadly, I am motivated to work towards the improvement of the understanding. By desining, building and understanding the computational engines that mediate collective cognition. Methodologically my tools come mostly from economics and machine learning.

Google scholar has a good first approximation to my academic output

Previously I wrote a PhD thesis at the ANU, on algoirthms and mechanisms for decision making designed to preserve subjects freedom of choice.
