Royal Society appoints HAL24K’s Adam Hill

HAL24K senior data scientist Dr. Adam Hill appointed as entrepreneur in residence to drive innovation in Southampton data science

The Royal Society’s Entrepreneur in Residence scheme allows Adam to help develop new enterprise skills and technologies within Physics and Astronomy at the University of Southampton. He is one of 19 people appointed by The Royal Society to spend 20 percent of their working time in residence at UK universities.

A Southampton alumnus, Adam will share real-world experience with staff and students over the next two years as he helps foster an entrepreneurial culture and prepares industry-ready graduates.

“I am thrilled and honoured to have been selected by The Royal Society to be one of the first recipients of the new Entrepreneurs in Residence programme,” Adam says. “I hope that it gives me the opportunity to build bridges between the institution at which I completed my PhD training and the industry in which I currently work.”

Professor Jonathan Flynn, Head of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Southampton, says, “We are delighted that Adam has been appointed as one of the first of The Royal Society's Entrepreneurs in Residence. Adam will use his real-world expertise in data-science, built on top of his own academic background, to help us maximise the impact of departmental research based on analysing and learning from large data volumes.”

“At HAL24K we pride ourselves in hiring the best of the best,” says Jerome Mol, founder and CEO of HAL24K. “Adam’s appointment by one the world’s most prestigious scientific institutions, The Royal Society, makes us all at HAL24K extremely proud. I am very much looking forward to this cooperation between The Royal Society, the University of Southampton and HAL24K.”
