Experience

Summary

I originally studied Physics and then moved into the machine learning field, completing a second Masters in Computer Speech, Text and Internet Technology at the University of Cambridge. Then I worked for 10 years in data science in industry.

Work history

Data Scientist
• Major European pharmaceutical company. • Developed predictive model in TensorFlow using GPU for clinical trial protocols. • Processing of highly domain specific texts.
Data Scientist
• Designed, developed, trained and deployed two large scale machine learning solutions. • Vehicle route planning for 4000 stores around the UK. • Order prediction for 15 million home shopping customers based on purchase history.

Portfolio

Streamlining online form with machine learning

I delivered a huge cost saving for a customer in the recruitment field by implementing a machine learning model to infer values from jobseekers' resumes, allowing them to remove fields from the online form and increase the conversion rate.

Clinical trials analysis

For one pharma company I developed and trained a deep learning tool to predict more than 50 output variables from a clinical trial protocol. This allows pharma companies and regulators to analyse and quantify large numbers of protocols, allowing more accurate cost estimation.

Vehicle unloading times at Tesco

I trained a simple regression model that would predict the unloading time of any future delivery at the time that the schedule is being generated.
