About me

Hi 👋

Stephen Allwright here. I’m a data scientist who is focused on drawing insight from data and communicating it simply.


Data science is where mathematics and statistics meets people, and that is why I enjoy working in this field.

Talks

One of the key reasons that I find data science such an interesting field to work in is because of the focus one must have on communicating insight from data in a clear and effective manner.

On that note, here are some recent talks and presentations that I have given where I at least try to do this.
