For researchers, the Data Study Group is an opportunity to put knowledge into practice, to go beyond their individual field of research to solve real world problems, and to learn more about the partner and to build up contacts between academia and industry.
Researchers are typically top PhD students and early career academics from statistics, computer science, engineering, mathematics, and computational social science.
Chanuki Seresinhe, Turing Enrichment Year Doctoral Student, who facilitated the Data Study Group on urban analytics for Dstl, said:
“The challenge was particularly interesting from a research point of view as there could be many different approaches to solving this problem. Therefore, the project drew a fantastic selection of candidates to our team from different fields.”
Participating researchers include talent from across the UK and are recruited through regular open calls on the Institute’s website.
