I'm a Senior Manager in the AI / Data Science team in Risk Analytics for Financial Services. I lead our UK offerings to help clients mitigate and manage new risks and ethical considerations introduced by AI to their business. I have led the development of a proprietary AI Governance Framework and Controls Library across risk domains to help accelerate gap analyses. I am also pursuing a PhD in Computer Science and Technology at the University of Cambridge, and my research focuses on fairness trade-offs in machine learning.
I have led the design and build of applications of statistics and Artificial Intelligence to build innovative risk management solutions for clients, leveraging open source tools (R, Python) and proprietary tools (MS SQL, Watson, Alteryx) in their delivery. Internally, I lead a course called "AI and Machine Learning for Business Conversations" to give our leadership visibility into various AI techniques and enable them to better identify potential opportunities for existing client challenges. The training is also available for client teams.
