We are delighted to share the news that Farida Mustafazade has been shortlisted for the ‘Rising Star’ Dynamites 17 award (celebrating North East Tech talent) and invited to present at the Government Statistical Service (GSS) conference on 22nd and 23rd November!

Farida joined Orchard as a Data Scientist in April to work on Orchard’s Income Analytics solution, as part of a KTP Partnership with Newcastle University. Our Income Analytics solution is an analytics software tool aimed at helping Income Teams to reduce rent arrears by focusing on tenants that need the most help in avoiding or reducing arrears through early prediction and identification methods.

Farida specialises in Statistical Analysis and Data Science, and at the conference she will be discussing exploratory data analyses and prediction models to assist decision support in how to handle/communicate with tenants in arrears to avoid the use of court proceedings.

John Hunt, Director, Orchard:

This invitation is clear evidence of the importance of Farida’s work at Orchard and the high regard she is held by her team and the partner customers she has worked with. I wish her the best of luck for her presentation.
