Dara Profile


Dara McHugh

Research Assistant

March 2013 – March 2014


I’m a developer with an abiding interest in politics and journalism. I’ve spent my development career in web development and machine learning and have broader experience in policy development and news media, among others. Having previously studied journalism and literature, I’m excited to be exploring technology’s role in the future of journalism and the humanities.

My free time is mainly spent reading, writing, and socialising. I love sci-fi, good documentaries, history and politics. I’m also becoming one of those tedious people who try to explain everything in terms of evolution.
