I have extensive experience in training and mentoring data scientists, as well as developing data products. Before I engagement with data, I’ve been a software architect and algorithm developer with expertise in solving hard problems.
Complementing my technological activities, I’m also an active researcher and a social scientist, applying advanced research methods to the study of organizations and organized behavior. I’m a proud homeschooler of 2 kids and an avid long distance cyclist.
I love working with data scientists and BI people, share my knowledge, encounter new challenges and solve hard and interesting problems. Therefore, my key activities revolve around training and mentoring teams of data scientists of all levels and backgrounds. My workshops are always hands-on, interactive with plenty of room to bring your own work in and get professional advice. The courses listed below are some common topics I often teach, but I always tailor the workshop content and structure to the needs of the participants.
In addition to these workshops I also provide mentoring services, in which I provide some consulting and guidance to less experienced teams, or those who need a specific expertise. I also provide “data strategy” consulting to managers, informing them in decisions about what data they need, what realistic value they can extract from it, and what they need to do (in terms of effort, investment and specific technologies) in order to achieve these goals. Occasionally I would develop a POC or a prototype for a data product to organizations that don’t have the necessary capabilities.
Courses on advanced topics such as time series analysis, survival and time to event analysis, social network data analysis, advanced topics in machine learning etc. can be arranged upon request.
