James Goulding

Deputy Director of N-LAB, the University of Nottingham

Dr James Goulding is part of the data program at the Rights Lab, which brings together the largest collection of modern-slavery scholars in the world. He also directs N/LAB, a centre for international analytics at the University of Nottingham, focusing on machine learning for social good. His recent research targets the challenges of the hidden, disparate and sparse data that surrounds Target 8.7  – by combining applying new surveying methodologies (comparative judgement), ‘big data’ streams (telecommunications patterns, drone imagery) and novel statistical modelling methods he and his team are now generating fine-grain vulnerability maps of issues such as child labour, and FGM which remain such serious problems across East Africa.
