    Nadia Odunayo

    Founder & CEO

    Nadia started The StoryGraph as a small side project. After university, she learnt to code at Makers Academy in London, before working as a software engineer at Pivotal. In her spare time, when not reading, you'll likely find her at a dance class. Her current favorite book is The Eighth Life (for Brilka) by Nino Haratischwili.

    Rob Frelow

    Co-founder & Chief AI Officer

    Rob is responsible for all of the machine learning that powers The StoryGraph's recommendations, similar books, and more! He's been in the tech industry for over 15 years, specialising in maintaining enterprise-level software deployments. Outside of work, Rob loves his VR headset and playing basketball. His favorite book is Daemon by Daniel Suarez.

    Abbie Walker

    Admin, Support, & Product

    Abbie does a wide variety of things at The StoryGraph, including customer support, managing our volunteer librarians, and helping to train our machine learning algorithms. Outside of reading, Abbie loves baking, arts and crafts, and greyhounds (especially her own dog, Mia). Her favorite book so far this year is Francesca Ekwuyasi's Butter Honey Pig Bread.
