Biography

Sophie founded Bays Consulting in 2009 to share her enthusiasm that analysis is both fun and provides clarity. With in-depth experience of analytical, statistical and problem structuring techniques, Sophie supports clients by developing pragmatic and robust solutions.

Stating out with a Bachelors degree in Aeronautical Engineering and a Masters in Applied Mathematics, Sophie gained momentum whilst working full time in the public sector by studying part time for a doctorate. It took eight years of combining work with study, but Sophie now holds a Phd in Bayesian Belief Networks (link to thesis: Read it here)

Combining her maths and engineering skills has seen Sophie: facilitate workshops, support strategic planning programmes, develop weather response models; provide technical review and validation of statistical model; determine the probability of observing matching patterns within a large messy data set and develop methodologies to combine errors across multistage processes.

When not analysing data and providing insights to clients, Sophie likes a bit of a challenge – which range from making perfect gluten free bread to training for a triathlon. Spare time is rarely spent idly.

The Key to Consistency.

I seem to have spent the last few weeks just writing. This has given me both sympathy with all those who are sitting exams at moment and hand cramp. I still like to write by hand as not only is this the easiest option on a train (which increasingly seems to be the place where…
