In 2012, Dr Roberto Trotta discovered that the ‘statistical tools’ he had developed to interpret huge volumes of data about the cosmos from probes, telescopes and the large hadron collider could also be used to benefit more organisations.
Through Imperial Consultants, he has worked on complex data driven problems in various sectors including energy, law, construction and transportation.
