  • Operational research models that look to simulate our wastewater treatment activities, so we can explore how we can optimise our processes and activities
  • Software applications / solutions that help our colleagues manage and maintain operational rotas and other important health and safety requirements

A typical Data Science project will involve liaising with stakeholders and communicating complex concepts, understanding business problems and identifying appropriate technical solutions and the associated benefits. Important skills for a Data Scientist include connecting to different data sources and manipulating different data types into useful formats, utilising machine learning or statistical methods to leverage insight from data and operationalising analytics into business tools or applications.
