I’m a Senior Data Scientist at Jaguar Land Rover, using the connected car and AI to deliver value, through new product development, improved customer experiences, streamlined operations and renewed strategy.

I joined a brand-new data science team which presented a lot of opportunity, and three years later I’m still enjoying lots of futuristic projects, challenges and career progression. I have previous analytics and data science experience in retail and financial services, and currently enjoy working in automotive because of the ability to shape an EV future in the present day. It’s particularly exciting to do this at Jaguar Land Rover- I’ve followed and lived the Jaguar brand since childhood, and to be playing my part towards the renaissance of Jaguar as an electric luxury brand is a dream.

As well as delivering autonomously, I also act as a technical lead on numerous other projects, by leading, reviewing and sharing best practice. I’ve also led outside the team by mentoring several women with a tactical approach, working with them on original project ideas with many value streams, and more recently I founded a ‘Women in AI’ group which provides members with technical and soft development opportunities in a challenging, male-dominated field. Additionally, I was chosen for a new role within Jaguar Land Rover’s Women in Engineering committee as its Analytics Lead, and externally I promote diversity and inclusion within AI and automotive, delivering numerous talks (panels, podcasts, conferences, webinars) to industry professionals, students, and women’s leadership and diversity groups.
