PROJECTS

We welcome projects from all fields, including but not limited to economics, finance, marketing, psychology, medicine, science and engineering. No project is too complex for our diverse team of consultants and analysts.

Determinants of House Prices
(Econometrics)
 

This project was conducted in collaboration with a researcher in the Department of Land Economy from the University of Cambridge. The data comprised a total of 14,000 residential property transaction records collected from the eight wards in Washington D.C., USA. The data was analysed using various regression techniques to identify the most influential determinants of house price in these wards. The findings were published in an internal report.

Gender Differences in Parenting
(Psychology)
 

This project was conducted in collaboration with a clinical psychologist based in Melbourne, Australia. The data was collected via surveys and the Depression Anxiety Stress Scales were used. The survey data was analysed using factor analysis to identify the factors influencing parenting style. In particular the client was interested in whether there was a significant difference in parenting styles between males and females. The findings were published in an internal report.

Effect of Portal Vein Embolisation on Patient Survival
(Medicine)

 

This project conducted a ten year follow up case control study of the effect of portal vein embolisation (PVE) on the survival of patients with colorectal liver metastases (CRLM) and the influence of hypoxia factors on tumour growth. The project was conducted in collaboration with surgeons from the National Health Service (NHS) in London. Kaplan–Meier techniques were used to determine the effect of portal vein embolisation on the survival times of patients with liver problems. The findings were published in a well-respected medical journal.

Customer Satisfaction
(Marketing)
 

This project was conducted in collaboration with another consultation firm based in the US. Data relating to consumers’ satisfaction with a web-based service was collected by the consultation firm. Cluster analysis was used to identify and characterise groups of customers based on demographic and other variables in order to examine the different levels of satisfaction experienced by different groups in the population to help formulate a more effective targeted marketing strategy.
