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!
