Personal profile

Research Statement

Byron’s research interests focus on using data to gain actionable insights for business and the public sector. From a technical perspective this spans the areas of data science and big data analytics – including the application of machine learning and other statistical models, natural language processing, and advanced data visualisation. This is combined with a focus on the practical applications of these technologies in business and other contexts; thus combining technical interests with research interests in innovation and management.


Byron’s teaching interests focus on the broad areas of business analytics from a technical and a managerial perspective, as well as statistics and research methods.


Byron holds a PhD in Innovation and a BSc Management (1st class hons) from Queen’s University Belfast, and an MSc Healthcare Informatics (distinction) from Ulster University.


Prior to joining Queen’s University Management School in 2017 Byron was a data scientist for a big 4 consultancy firm, primarily working in the legal and healthcare industries. Byron also has over 4 years experience in healthcare informatics working for a major UK healthcare trust.
