Ben joined the company in January 2019 after completing his degree in Politics and Economics. During his degree he took econometric modules, carrying out regression analysis on panel data to determine factors relating to unemployment. During these modules and his dissertation, he developed key skills in analysis, report writing, and qualitative research which have proved valuable in his work at Si.
Before joining Si he worked in a healthcare consultancy, where he was part of a number of projects relating to the NHS and various waiting time metrics. This included analysis of A&E data particularly focused on the four-hour target and the causes of breaches. He also undertook analysis on cancer data for hospitals in various regions of the UK, comparing each region and hospital and finding why some regions performed worse than others. This gave him a solid basis for analysis as well as helping to develop an understanding of the structure of healthcare in the UK.
Ben has interests in healthcare and transport, looking at how planned infrastructure and health projects can help economic development.
