The University of Exeter Business School is delighted to invite you to our Autumn event, in which we will be exploring how effective data management can boost decision making and performance in business.
We will be joined by Mark Patron (Exeter Alumni, Digital Consultant & Non-Executive Director of RedEye), Dr Sabina Leonelli (Associate Professor in Philosophy and History of Science) and Professor Brit Grosskopf (Professor of Economics, Head of Economics) whose knowledge and expertise in this field will no doubt inform and spark debate.
Mark graduated from the University of Exeter in Engineering Science and has worked in data driven marketing for 30 years. He was MD of Claritas, now Acxiom, and Chairman of Abacus Europe, the data division of DoubleClick Inc. As CEO he grew RedEye to be one of the top two UK based email marketing automation businesses. He has been a director of over 50 data businesses and responsible for making over £100m for private equity firms.
Sabina is Associate Professor in Philosophy and History of Science. She serves as the Co-Director of the Exeter Centre for the Study of the Life Sciences, where she leads the Data Studies research strand (www.datastudies.eu). She is also the Open Science lead for the Global Young Academy and a member of the Open Science Policy Platform of the European Commission. Her research focuses on the philosophy, history and sociology of data-intensive science, especially the research processes, scientific outputs and social embedding of Open Science, Open Data and Big Data. Until 2019 she holds an ERC Starting Grant to investigate and compare existing strategies for dissemination and re-use of data across several fields, with emphasis on the biological and biomedical domains. Sabina is published widely in philosophical, STS and biology journals, and is the author of Data-Centric Biology: A Philosophical Study(2016, Chicago University Press).
Brit joined the University of Exeter Business School as a Professor of Economics in September 2013, she is the current head of the Economics department. Originally from Germany, Brit did her undergraduate degree in economics at the Humboldt University in Berlin. She completed her PhD dissertation Social Preferences and Learning in Experimental Games under the supervision of Rosemarie Nagel at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, in 2000. She then spent three years at Harvard Business School, where she was a post-doc with Al Roth (Nobel Laureate, Economics 2012). Brit then took a tenure-track job at Texas A&M University where she was granted tenure in 2009. She moved to the University of Birmingham as a Professor in Experimental Economics in 2011, where she founded the Birmingham Experimental Economics Laboratory (BEEL) of which she was the Director until she joined Exeter. Her research interests lie at the intersection of economics and psychology. She uses experimental methods to study individual and group behaviour with a particular interest in social preferences, reasoning, learning, reputation, identity and happiness. Brit has obtained research support from the National Science Foundation, the British Academy and the Russell Sage Foundation.
The evening will be held at the Business School, with refreshments on arrival. Presentations will follow along with a Q&A. Guests will then have the opportunity to network and enjoy an elegant buffet supper.
