How to Not Think Like a Data Scientist



Students, Academics

This event will be a webinar. Joining details are available on Moodle.

Speaker: Lara Chammas, Vodafone Group

Series: Data Bites


In this talk, Lara will discuss techniques for being an effective Data Scientist by escaping the trap of throwing data into a model and hoping for the best. Instead, by thinking critically about the problem and understanding the model's context, data science tools become more than buzzwords thrown around by your bosses, but effective means for change.


Lara is a Research and Innovation Data Scientist at the Vodafone Group. Her work focuses on researching and developing models to improve Vodafone’s operations and products. Soon, she will be leaving her role to start a PhD in Health Data Science at Oxford University. Lara completed the MSc Data Science in 2019-2020, having previously completed a BSc in Biology.
