Conor Turner, data scientist and software developer


I'm Conor Turner, a software developer and data scientist based in the East Midlands in England. I'm blogging about a number of my data-science home-projects, mainly to improve my web-dev skills but also in the hope that some people may even find it interesting.

I currently do all of my research and blogging in the evenings, after giving my best hours in the working day to my job in engineering. I'm looking to change careers to something where I can indulge my passions full-time, giving the best hours of my day to my work. I am also excited to work in a team full of like-minded people, as I feel engineering is yet to fully embrace advanced analysis techniques and the benefits delivered by streamlining analyses.

I'm always on the lookout for interesting topics to explore. If you want to drop me a line, please don't hesitate to get in touch on

What do I do?

I love to research various topics and trawl the internet for sources of data. I like to get a handle on disparate and difficult datasets, organise and structure it properly, then analyse it. I also love to hunt through data to find relationships that may not be obvious, using advanced algorithms to detect and quantify these relationships. Finally, no analysis is really complete without being properly presented, either in easily-digestible writing or (preferably) through charts - like the animation below.
