Team building

We would like to introduce the new recruits to our team.

As an QSR, coffee and convenience chain analytic, insight and promotion business, our products and services are based on data gathering, cleaning, analysing and reporting we employ skilled data scientists and informatics designers to help you gain insight and visibility into your data.

Dr Niaz Chowdhury, PhD our AI Lead is building our team with talented individuals.

Store Performance has partnered with Kings College London, to provide DOE insights and expertise for its InnovateUK co-funded SAM Artificial Intelligence (SAM AI) project that adds machine learning to the analysis of in-store promotion at scale. SAM AI allows “active experimentation” across an entire estate to deliver the right message with the right copy at the right time on a site-by-site basis.

The application of DOE in combination with SAM AI advanced machine learning offers a uniquely effective way of turning insight into action by optimising promotional activity in store.

We feel very fortunate that we have enlisted Professor Steven Gilmour, Head of Department of Mathematics and Professor in Statistics and Dr Kalliopi Mylona, Lecturer in Statistics to help us with this task.

Nathan Judd MSc BSc joins as an Informatics Scientist with his comprehensive background in Mathematics and Statistics will be working alongside Professor Gilmour and Dr Mylona within our team.

Amer Karem MSc BSc and Rejwan Bin Sulaiman MSc BSc join the team as Data Scientists with the remit to build the platform and machine learning to collect and analyse multiple with both the Design of Experiment and Machine Learning methodologies to provide insight and action for our multi-unit food customers.

We welcome our new team members and are very excited about the value

Kings College London 

King’s College London is an internationally renowned university delivering exceptional education and world-leading research. King’s is ranked in the top 10 UK universities in the world (QS World Rankings 2020) and based in the heart of London. With nine faculties, institutes and schools King’s is a public research university producing 14 Nobel Laureates and is a founding college and member institution of the federal University of London. 

Professor Steven Gilmour 

Head of Department of Mathematics (Professor in Statistics King’s College London) 

Professor of Statistics at Queen Mary, University of London from 2004-10, and Professor of Statistics in the School of Mathematical Sciences and the Statistical Sciences Research Institute at the University of Southampton from 2010-16. He joined King’s College London as Professor of Statistics in the Department of Mathematics in 2016. 

Steven Gilmour’s research is mostly on the statistical theory, methodology and applications of the design and analysis of experiments. Much of his research is on experiments with complex treatment structures, such as those with many variables (factorial designs), those with continuous levels (especially leading to nonlinear models) and those with several continuous variables (response surface methodology). 

Dr Kalliopi Mylona 

Lecturer in Statistics King’s College London 

Prior to Kalliopi Mylona’s appointment at King’s College London as a Lecturer in Statistics, she worked at Carlos III University, in Madrid, as a CONEX-Marie Curie Fellow of Statistics. Before that she was a Lecturer in Statistics within Mathematical Sciences at the University of Southampton, UK, after finishing her fellowship as a Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellow in the Faculty of Applied Economics at the University of Antwerp, Belgium. 

She holds a Master of Science degree in Applied Mathematical and Physical Sciences from the National Technical University of Athens in Greece and obtained a PhD in Statistics from the same university in 2009.
