Ronald Du Toit
Data Scientist at Allan Gray


Ronald joined Allan Gray straight out of university, joining a newly formed team with the aim of growing the Data Science (DS) capability within the company. He completed his post-graduate studies in Mechanical Engineering at the Centre for Asset Integrity Management (UP); researching the use of blade tip timing techniques to identify and classify turbomachine blade damage. Interestingly, many of the techniques used in his research were transferable to the FinTech space, thus demonstrating the flexibility in application of popular methodologies across industries. Ronald remains an avid learner and is excited to see how businesses continue to unlock value using innovative DS related solutions.
