Shell: DataScience@work seminar

15th June 2021
14:00 - 15:00


Matthew Jones, Statistisian at Shell Research.


Abstract: Data Science is growing in importance across business and industry. In Shell, a new Data Science organisation was created in 2018 to accelerate the development and deployment of methods from Statistics, Machine Learning and related fields. In the talk, I will describe a few of our current projects in the areas of environmental extreme value analysis, methane emissions monitoring, geomechanical inversion, and production optimisation. I will also try to give a flavour of what it’s like to work as a Statistician in Shell’s evolving Data Science organisation.

Bio: I’m a Statistician working in Shell’s Data Science organisation: in my job, I get to work as a consultant/researcher on a variety of projects across the company. Before starting at Shell, I completed a PhD at Durham University, working on a few different topics in sequential experimental design, Bayesian uncertainty analysis, and Bayes linear analysis.


Matthew will be joined by fellow Shell Statistician Philip Jonathan.
