Sophie Scannell, MSc

Sophie is responsible for the successful delivery of projects at PhysicsX. She works collaboratively with customers from problem definition through implementation to long-term, productionised, use of tools. Sophie cares particularly about practical and empathetic software development – creating solutions that are easy to use for their respective users and that solve the problems at hand.

A mathematician by background, Sophie specialised in fluid dynamics before applying her mathematical modelling expertise to credit risk, creating novel mathematical modelling methods for large financial institutions. Before PhysicsX she worked for Palantir Technologies, where she led both product and delivery teams to implement solutions in, predominantly, the advanced engineering and infrastructure sectors, both public and private.
