About Me

Data Explorer, Lover of Code, Learning Adict

I am a Data Scientist

My endless love for everything software and data led me to Data Science in 2013. My skills have since crossed the Aussie-state line three times: working for NSW Health, a multi-million dollar FinTech in Melbourne, and completing my data science PhD in Brisbane.

I'm constantly looking for new technologies to learn, datasets to explore, and avenues for applying machine learning. I have a soft spot for notebook based EDA and knowledge-visualisation.
