About me

  • International Experience

I am a Data Analytics Consultant in the Transport team at Aurecon and I love being able to use data to help people to make better decisions. 

I grew up in Guildford, England enjoying puzzles but trying to convince myself that I didn’t like maths because it wasn’t “cool”. I finally abandoned that view at age 16 when I chose maths as one of my A Levels and then ultimately to study maths at university. 

Since uni, I have been lucky to work in all sorts of industries including healthcare, transport, and even biosecurity. At age 23 I decided to go back to uni to study Data Science which opened doors to more technical roles, including being sponsored to move to Australia!

About my role

  • Analytical
  • Humorous
  • Independent
  • Observant
  • Understanding

A Consultant works with lots of different clients to solve specific problems that the client might have. Generally, they are highly specialised in a particular area and so can offer a level of expertise that might not be possible if the client was to do it themselves.

The role of a Data Analytics Consultant is incredibly varied: depending on the company they work for, they might be working on projects in completely different industries with completely different questions to answer, all in one day! It might involve talking to clients or internal colleagues to work out exactly the question that needs answering, carrying out analysis (using a variety of tools such as coding, Excel, or even Maths and Statistics in more complex cases), writing reports to explain what the data is saying, or presenting findings back to colleagues or clients.
