Giuseppe Maio is a Data Analyst at Trilateral Research and is co-developing Trilateral’s data-driven solution for risk assessment and human security analysis in the public sector (STRIAD). He joined the company in 2017 as an intern and worked as a research assistant within Trilateral’s technical teams while being a post-graduate student.
At Trilateral, he has worked on the EC-funded ENERGIC-OD, TITANIUM and PROTEUS projects, focussing on exploitation, dissemination and impact assessments. More recently, he was responsible for the data analytics and visualisation work in Project Solebay (funded by the UK’s Ministry of Defence) which aimed to develop a risk assessment tool to support the UK military’s response to modern slavery.
Giuseppe is interested in machine learning and statistical modelling to analyse and prevent forms of unfree labour such as child labour and child soldiering, interactive data visualisations, and advanced statistical methods such as multilevel modelling, structural equation modelling and latent growth curves. He is a Visiting Researcher in the Social Statistics Department of the University of Manchester. Giuseppe regularly undertakes consultancies on statistical, quantitative, and data-driven assignments for various EC DGs.
Giuseppe’s background lies in quantitative social science, statistics and political science. He has carried out quantitative projects for the World Bank, the UK’s Government Equalities Office, the UK’s Department for International Development (DfID), the CULT Committee of the European Parliament, Eurofound, EASME, DG GROW, DG CONNECT, and Bupa.
He holds an MSc in Social Research Methods and Statistics (awarded with distinction) and a bachelor’s degree in Politics and International Relation (first-class honours) from the University of Manchester. In his MSc dissertation, he conducted a longitudinal data analysis (parallel latent growth curve model) investigating the relation between simultaneous change over time in both hope and educational attainment among poverty-stricken Peruvian youths. Prior to joining Trilateral, Giuseppe completed a Q-Step internship with the World Bank, worked as a research assistant in the Social Statistics Department of the University of Manchester, and as an associate consultant for the Centre for Strategy and Evaluation Services (CSES) with whom he still collaborates on behalf of Trilateral. He is a keen writer and has published journalistic pieces, blogs, a long essay, and an award-winning conference paper.
