Ms Ellen Ashmore
Coordinator, Cambridge Centre for Data-Driven Discovery (C2D3)
I have a background in analytical chemistry and a chemistry degree from the University of Bath (MChem). Prior to joining C2D3 I spent the majority of my career working in New Zealand for a government research institute where I researched food safety and environmental chemistry, including heavy metals, carcinogenic compounds, and pathogenic bacteria in food, and illicit drugs in wastewater. My clients for such research included industry, academia and government ministries and departments in New Zealand and Australia.
After relocating back to the UK, I have brought my skills in project and programme management to the University of Cambridge and am the Coordinator for the Cambridge Centre for Data-Driven Discovery (C2D3). Here at C2D3 I promote and facilitate interdisciplinary research in machine learning, artificial intelligence and data science, and support the growing community.
I have a particular interest in extending opportunities to learn data-driven discovery skills to all students and researchers across the University, from STEM right the way through to the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences.
