His passion to learn both new skills and domain knowledge, and apply them directly to his work, saw him accelerate to a Senior role, and then onto become a Data Scientist within the two years he has spent with Lloyds List Intelligence. There, he has worked on numerous data lead projects, including the investigation, research, and implementation of an AIS Spoofing detection methodology.
