Location  A1.01, Zeeman Building, University of Warwick

Kavya Jagan - National Physical Laboratory

The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) is the UK’s National Measurement Institute (NMI), responsible for developing and maintaining the national primary measurement standards. In essence this means that most measurements of mass made in the UK, from peeking at your bathroom scale to measuring out flour for a recipe, can be traced back to the primary standard of mass maintained at NPL. This is indeed true of the other 6 base SI units as well - second, meter, ampere, mole, candela and kelvin. 

However, we don’t just measure, we also process, analyse and advise in a myriad of areas from air quality to cancer treatment. From monitoring air quality to the automation of manufacturing processes, data holds the key to solving some of the world's biggest challenges. The data science department at NPL supports the other science areas and works directly with industry to help analyse and use data with confidence. 

In this presentation, I will provide a brief overview of NPL and the data science department. I will also speak about a few recently completed projects: 
- Decision making on the degree of severity of myocardial blood flow abnormalities 
- Clustering satellite data of ground movement 
- Noise monitoring using data from acoustic sensor networks 

Refreshments will be available from 4:45 p.m. in Zeeman Building Atrium
