Statistical machine learning researcher
I am the head of machine learning and data science at Qlearsite people analytics. Together we are bringing the next level of analytics to HR and people data including machine reading, predictive modelling and experiment design. We will help organisations get more value out of e.g. survey data through intelligent text processing techniques, identify patterns of behaviour that are predictive of future long term absence and design experiments that allow people to quickly understand how to e.g. increase engagement and well-being of their employees.
Before Qlearsite I was a PhD and PostDoc at the Machine Learning Group, University of Cambridge working with Zoubin Ghahramani. My research ultimately focused on the automation of statistical model construction and the rational allocation of computational resources when constructing a predictive model. A new version of this automation should appear in Qlearsite soon.
Before my PhD I was a management consultant at the Boston Consulting Group and before that I received a B.A. in mathematics and M.Phil in Statistics from the University of Cambridge.
