Consulting activities of Upwork Data Scientist Thomas Wood
Since 2018 I have been working as a freelance data scientist consultant, helping large organisations around the globe extract value from unstructured data such as text and images.

Recent activities as a freelance data scientist include a project for Boehringer Ingelheim, one of Germany’s largest pharmaceutical companies, where I have been developing algorithms to improve pre-clinical research, clinical operations, and the supply chain, as well as the National Health Service where I am developing models to predict employee attrition.

What I Offer as an Upwork Data Scientist
I am available for consulting and contracting, not permanent roles.
Here are some examples of the kind of business problems I regularly handle:
- Millions of customers/users of a website?
- Do you need to predict complex behaviour on a user by user basis?
- Anticipate customer churn before it happens?
- Purchasing patterns?
- Product recommendations?
- How can you extract value from a huge database of text data, without writing manual rules?
I have more than 10 years of experience in machine learning, more recently in deep learning. My speciality is large amounts of unstructured text data (product descriptions, customer profile texts, etc).
I also work with image data. Through my company Fast Data Science Ltd and via my Upwork profile as an Upwork Data Scientist, I can provide various services from consulting to complete production ready deployment of machine learning solutions.

What is Upwork?
Upwork is a freelancing platform connecting professionals with clients anywhere in the world. Upwork has more than 18 million registered freelancers. Upwork was founded more than two decades ago when a Silicon Valley entrepreneur wanted to hire a close friend in Athens for a job, and found that his team was concerned about working with somebody halfway across the globe. The two friends solved the problem by creating a new web-based platform which would bring visibility and trust to remote work.
