About me

Ryan Varley at Alnwick Castle Profile Picture

I am a Data Scientist at GrowthIntel and former Astrophysics PhD Student.

At GrowthIntel I am primarily responsible for developing and improving predictive models to optimise business-to-business marketing efforts for clients. Involves statistical analysis, machine learning, natural language processing, building data pipelines, and feature engineering.

During my PhD I worked on detecting molecules (i.e. water) on planets outside the solar system by using signal processing to extract the small planet signal buried in the noise of the much larger stellar signal. As part of this process I built the HST WFC3 simulator Wayne, the python exoplanet catalogue interface ExoData and the citation helper for papers on NASA ADS, ADSBibTeX.
