Thomas Ogden

I’m a research scientist and software engineer, particularly interested in probabilistic approaches to machine learning on time series and graphs.

I’m currently Senior Data Scientist for Forecasting at Spotify.

Previously I did a PhD in Theoretical Physics at Durham. My research in Quantum Optics and Quantum Information led to the first observation of the simulton, a quasiparticle of light, in an atomic vapour. Before that, a BSc in Maths and Physics at Warwick and an MSc in Computational Physics at Stockholm.

Outside of research I enjoy time with family, running, music and books. I also enjoy mountaineering and kayaking when I get chance.
