Hello, my name is
I am a professional solution engineer, data scientist, and digitalisation consultant with mosaiic.
A planetary geoscientist by training, I previously used remote sensing techniques to study comets, moons, and terrestrial planets.
Today, I am applying my versatile skills to creating more down-to-Earth solutions. With practical experience as a certified Data Scientist, I am delighted to consult on business applications for machine learning, neural networks, and big data.
I am fiercely passionate about open and accessible science and knowledge transfer, and creating practical applications of science to solve everyday problems. To that end, I have worked with many projects in scientific outreach, sci com, open data, and open research.
