S2E2 – Peter Ellis

In episode 2 of “The Orthogonals” we spoke to Peter Ellis. Peter is a Director and Chief Data Scientist at Nous Group, an international management consultancy operating in 10 locations across the UK, Australia and Canada. He also writes the Free Range Statistics blog, a great place to see cutting-edge techniques applied to real-world problems, all with reproducible code. But you’ll never guess what his undergraduate degree was (hint: requires long fingernails on one hand only!)

We spoke about scraping emojis from tweets, why Drew Conway’s Venn diagram is still relevant in 2020, and becoming a data scientist to argue with economists.

You can find Peter on Twitter @ellis2013nz or on his Free Range Statistics blog.
