I am a data science consultant specialising in text, images, unstructured data and healthcare/pharmaceuticals. Certified by Microsoft as an Azure Data Scientist.
I originally studied Physics to Master’s level and then moved into the machine learning field, completing a second Masters in Computer Speech, Text and Internet Technology at the University of Cambridge in 2008.
Since then I have stayed in the exciting field of machine learning for more than 10 years. I have worked in a variety of companies in industries including consulting, pharmaceuticals, computer science, recruitment, retail and security, as well as some research experience.
I am currently working for Boehringer Ingelheim, one of Germany’s largest pharmaceutical companies, where I am developing algorithms to improve pre-clinical research, clinical operations, and the supply chain, as well as the National Health Service where I am developing models to predict employee attrition.
I retain some academic links, where I give a yearly talk in the Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School at Oxford University.
In recent years I have specialised in deep learning, which is an exciting area of machine learning that allows computers to interpret text, sound and images. I have used this with commercial success for processing CVs and job descriptions, and also for biometric security applications (face and fingerprint recognition).
Through my company Fast Data Science Ltd, I can provide various services from consulting to complete production ready deployment of machine learning solutions. I am based in London, UK but am willing to work with clients over the globe. I have experience working and living abroad and speak fluent French, German and Spanish. I take on contracting and consulting work for large and small companies.
