Data Scientist, Heineken
Kirstin Hay completed her PhD in Astrophysics at the University of St Andrews in early 2018 – her research focussed on using statistical and machine learning methods for the characterisation of exoplanet transits.
Since then, she has been working as a data scientist at Heineken UK, applying the techniques and methods from scientific research to solve business problems. Having a PhD in itself wasn’t a requirement to work at Heineken but the experience she gained through doing it meant she had lots of evidence of the right skill set.
Heineken has several graduate scheme opportunities
