Position

Government Operational Research Analyst, Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS)

I am a government operational research analyst and have spent my career working at Home Office, HM Treasury and now BEIS, applying quantitative and qualitative techniques to help improve government decision making.  For much of this time I was working in or leading an internal analytical consultancy which provided customers with access to a very wide range of analytical approaches, from traditional forecasting techniques to systems thinking and multi-criteria decision analysis, and gave me the opportunity to contribute to a variety of corporate and policy areas

I now head a small Modelling and Data Science team at BEIS with particular focus on exploring the potential of agent-based modelling to support policy making in areas related to business, growth and productivity.
