About

Hi there! I am multilingual Chief Data Scientist/ML-Data and Software Engineer with over 12 years of experience in data science, data analytics, software engineering, artificial intelligence and data mining. I have mentored dozens of people from fresh beginners to experienced professionals, to C-level executives. I hold a Ph.D in systems engineering and computational game theory.

I have worked as a consultant in many industry sectors (e.g. Insurance, energy, telecom, banking, shipping, fishing, media and many others). I have also produced multiple scientific publications and presentations where I have dissemitated my work in several international conferences. At the moment, I am working at Atea AS (One of the largest tech services suppliers in Europe), where I lead and take part in many projects that aim to strengthen and solidify Atea value creation proposal to its clients, both in the public and private sectors.

I personally love to mentor students who are committed, passionate, driven and creative when it comes to solving problems. Please feel free to reach out if there is anything you are wondering about (P.S. As previously mentioned, I am multilingual :) please feel free to reach out in English, Spanish, French, Norwegian, Swedish or Danish)

David has been helping me to bridge my knowledge gaps around web application microservices, as well as AI/NLP entity recognition and text generation. My motivation for mentoring was to help me get my personal project off the ground, as well as talking about technical challenges at work. He's been super useful and is always attentive to my project's specific needs. He's helped to really speed up development work. Definitely recommend!

David has been an exceptional mentor, particularly during critical moments like my recent interview process. His transformative support in conducting mock interviews, especially in coding, significantly boosted my confidence. Despite the geographical distance, with me in London and him in Norway, his reliable presence has been remarkable. Our face-to-face meet-up in London reinforced the strong personal connection we’ve developed, making it a notable highlight. Beyond interview preparation, David’s impact is profound. He has not only elevated my confidence during the interview process but also in my overall career approach. I know I can always count on his sound advice and insights whenever I face doubts in my professional path. His consistent availability and genuine interest in my career development have been pivotal. Thank you, David, for your invaluable mentorship, guidance, and for being a significant figure in my career journey.

Over the past couple of months, David stepped in, not just as a mentor but as a beacon of guidance and a reliable supporter. His expertise and insights have been invaluable in helping me navigate through complex professional scenarios. What stands out most about David is his reliability. In a field as dynamic and challenging as data engineering, having a mentor who is consistently available and ready to assist is a rare find. David has been that steady presence for me, always there to offer practical advice, encouragement, and a listening ear. Through his guidance, I am able to relax and not worry about what I'm doing. I am confident that with his mentorship, I will find the best next role for me. Thank you, David, for being a support in my career journey.
