Welcome Ronnie

Ronnie joins the London office as an Senior Analyst. He graduated with a distinction in MSc Actuarial Science from Heriot-Watt University in Scotland. He started his career with the telematics team at Hastings Direct, then joined the analytics team at My Policy. He has gained working knowledge in SQL, PHP, R and is experienced with underwriting and pricing for telematics motor insurance. He also has exposure in developing various machine learning models and exploring ways to understand them.

Prior to his actuarial training, he spent a year studying Pharmacology at university before he found his love for mathematics. Currently, he is writing the IFoA fellowship exams to become a qualified actuary. Meanwhile, he likes to attend different Meetup groups to expand his knowledge about data analytics in other industries.

Fun fact: Ronnie has recently picked up a new hobby to go to a local farm to pick his own produce, before experimenting with new ways of cooking them. He once decided to turn lasagna into a dessert dish. Needless to say, it was one of his worst ideas so far.
