Description

The School of Politics and International Relations is excited to offer its inaugural talk in the “Data Science for Social Sciences Research” speaker series. In this talk, Jeremy Rowe from the Office for National Statistics will discuss the utility and practice of using data science to further our understanding of some of the most pressing economic issues of our time and of their social consequences, both in the present and for posterity.

Jeremy Rowe is the lead data scientist for economic insights within the Data Science Campus at the Office for National Statistics. The Campus aims to utilise data science for the public good and Jeremy leads a team that creates new timely and granular economic insights using novel data sources and data science techniques. He has worked as part of ONS efforts to develop more real-time indicators of the economy and society harnessing new data sources, for example VAT and ship tracking data. These statistics help to inform policymakers and the public quickly about economic and societal changes. Prior to joining the ONS, Jeremy was an economist at the Bank of England and obtained degrees in economics.

The talk will take place in Room C17 in the Pope Building on University Park Campus.

The talk will start at 4pm. The talk itself will last thirty minutes, followed by a further thirty minutes of Q&A.

There will be a small social event taking place after the talk, from 5pm-6pm, in Pope A13. Food and drink will be provided. If you want to attend the social you are required to register separately.

All staff and students within the Faculty of Social Sciences are welcome to attend.
