Tori Tompkins

Data Analytics Consultant

Advancing Analytics - We're a consultancy that provides data science and data analytics solutions to businesses.

My job involves getting data from lots of different places and using maths and programming skills to get interesting predictions and recommendations .

I love to solve problems for people - it feels like I'm playing a maths puzzle or computer game.

There is no typical day for me - one day I will building recommendation algorithms in the healthcare industry and the next predicting human behavior in a shop.

At school I studied computing and maths because I realised that I loved to code. I eventually went to study Cybersecurity at university which was really fun because I learned to hack and got to work with our local police to investigate crimes. I eventually found my love for data science - which is where my passion for maths and programming intersect and here I am!

I have no idea where I want to go next! I plan on returning to university soon to study for a masters in statistics and data science so I can work in AI and data science to help more people.

Outside or work I love to read and watch movies with friends and family. I have also recently started rock climbing which I am very bad at but I really enjoy!
