About this blog
This blog is an effort to structure and share what I learned (and continue to learn) working as a Data / Management Scientist and Management Consultant. My hope is that by writing it down, I will get better at communicating it, and get feedback from others.
I am a PhD Fellow in the Dynamics Lab in Ireland & also advise / support organisations seeking to use their data to generate valuable insight. My primary research focus is predictive modelling of social behavior (using networks). In a previous life, I spent time as both management consultant (specialising in Finance) and a Management Scientist (predicting and optimising customer behavior). I host the Social Network Data repository, have been published in the Harvard Business Review thanks to winning a Kaggle competiton and am currently working on a social data product involving objective measures of authority.
