About me

My name is Chris Applegate. I currently work at Factmata, a startup in London fighting misinformation online.

My experience includes over a decade in the marketing, advertising & media industries, including We Are Social, Google and BuzzFeed. Before that, I earned degrees in computer science, and the sociology of science & technology, from Cambridge and Edinburgh respectively.

Feel free to add me on Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn.
