Hunter is a finance professional at NAB, currently leading data initiatives for Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing, regulatory compliance and transactional fraud monitoring.
These are current data and model heavy programs with which he can demonstrate many of the core competencies of Data Science in a real-world context.
For over 20 years, Hunter's worked with data through generations of warehouses, modelling, messaging, reporting and analytics - providing consulting architecture and governance/management services to expose value in commercial environments. He's found that it's not the tools and technologies that matter so much as articulating the right questions, then communicating answers/insight clearly and with influence.
He has a keen interest in disruptive challengers to traditional business and also actively embraces contemporary art, running a PR and production business.
Hunter has a Masters of Applied Finance from Macquarie University, taught with "the academic rigour required for an applied understanding of the theories that underpin solutions for 'real world' finance issues and complex transactions." The lecturers were industry leaders and it was stats/math/data heavy, giving a strong finance lead into Data Science.
