Description Analysis of heart health data 
Organisation Unilever
Country United Kingdom 
Sector Private 
PI Contribution The project also stimulated additional research (which is ongoing) with Unilever on analysis of heart health data in collaboratidn with Prof. Robert Nolan from the University of Torronto in Canada.
Collaborator Contribution exchange of data
Impact Six Months Funding from Unilever for data analysis on the work done to date in collaboration with Dr. Mike Gatt in Unilever Colworth and Prof. Rob Nolan in Toronto. This allowed additional use of the statistical complexity measures we have developed.
