    Personal profile

    Biography

    I am a Teaching Fellow in the School of Engineering and Applied Science. My teaching includes IT project management, Team projects, Business aspects of Computing, Big Data analytics and Digital Technology management.

    I come from an industry background with 15 years of experience in Consulting and Management. I am a former BI & Data analytics leader with a proven track record in financial benefits realisation and end-user optimisation. I have built strong BI & Analytics teams and driven forward performance to achieve high-level status, using creatively defined BI & Analytics governance.

    I have contributed to important project wins and end-to-end delivery within budget constraints. I have taken an active part in building relationships with business end-users, key stakeholders and executive business leaders.

    I have worked as a senior business-intelligence and data-analytics consultant in multiple industry sectors for clients such as: Électricité de France (EDF); Gaz de France (GDF); L’Oréal group; Darty Télécommunications; Société Générale; French Ministry of Defence; and Veolia Environnement.

    I have a strong experience working with pre-sales teams and I have responded to calls for tender for many customers. I have developed BI & Analytics offers to support business development.

    During my career, I have also trained developers and project managers on Data integration solutions like Informatica, DataStage and Reporting tools like Business Objects.
