Data Problems Crave Physicists

Sometimes one needs an outsider to help solve a problem within an organization. However, where does one find somebody with the analytic abilities to truly understand the problem while delivering a data-driven answer? The problems of day-to-day life are often as intractable as trying to understand the formation of Universe. This is why organizations look to those who did `Big Data` before it was mainstream: a physicist data analyst. 

Snooty Analytics is a boutique consulting firm that is unique in the Netherlands: analytics with a physicist twist.

About Dr. Tunnell

Dr. Tunnell has over 10 years of experience as a researcher and data analyst in the field of particle and astroparticle physics.  He helped answer some of the deepest questions about our existence, using cutting-edge technology.  He has written 30 articles in esteemed physics journals, including three articles with more than 250 citations. However, when he started, the statistics and Big Data techniques were too specialized to be more widely useful outside of Big Science projects.

Technology companies and open-source tools have made significant progress in lowering the barrier to entry into data-analytics. At this point, the same data exploration techniques that search for Dark Matter or the Higgs particle can be used for actionable business insights.  Having access to a stockpile of data, companies can now learn things about their customers or solve problems that they never thought were possible. However, data analytics is not a panacea.  Understanding what is and is not feasible requires an expert, which is where Dr. Tunnell steps in.
