Meet our consultants:


Dr. Roberto Trotta, MSc(hons), PhD, FRAS, FHEA
. Roberto is one of the worldwide leading figures of astrostatistics — the development and application of advanced statistical techniques to problems in astrophysics and cosmology. In his academic career, he held prestigious fellowships at Oxford before becoming faculty at Imperial College London, where he continues to develop cutting edge statistical methods to investigate dark matter and dark energy. Roberto was named by Foreign Policy magazine as one of the 100 Leading Global Thinkers 2014.
He is an expert in Bayesian model comparison and model averaging, numerical exploration of high dimensional parameter spaces using Markov Chain Monte Carlo and other probabilistic methods, multi-level hierarchical modelling and features detection. He has an MSc from ETH Zurich in theoretical physics and a PhD in physics from Geneva University.

Dr. Pietro Berkes, MSc, PhD. Pietro has over 10 years experience academic research developing machine learning algorithms and researching the statistical basis of perception at Humboldt Universty in Berlin, the Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit (UCL) in London, and Brandeis University in Boston. He received a Ph.D. degree in biophysics from Humboldt University in Berlin, and a M.S. degree in mathematics from ETH in Zurich. Pietro’s expertise lies in machine learning, Bayesian and classical statistics, numerical, and scientific software development.

What customers say:

“We asked Data Fusion Consultants to carry out a detailed technical assessment to analyse aspects of the environmental impact of our proposed residential estate. The report was compiled within tight timescales due to the strict deadlines we had to adhere too. I was struck by how Data Fusion Consultants quickly understood the brief and the problems that we faced. They handled the whole project with great efficiency and professionalism. I would certainly endorse Data Fusion Consultants to any potential clients.”
