Henry is a graduate data scientist at Dragonfly. He enjoys exploring novel data problems and applying machine learning to issues in conservation and ecology.

Henry studied at the University of Auckland for a bachelor of science in computer science and mathematics, and a bachelor of science (honours) in computer science. During his study, he completed an internship with the artificial intelligence (AI) team at Xero.

After graduating Henry worked at Arcanum AI on projects related to natural language processing and the performance of models in settings that change with time.

There’s been some incredible progress in machine learning and AI research, building tools to make sense of complex data systems. We’re just starting to see the impact of this technology outside academia, but I believe it has a major role to play in solving the issues our planet is facing, from climate change to public policy.
