Reach out if you want to talk about: AI, machine learning, data visualization, complex systems, applied statistical inference, network data, and general data science. Things I am exceptionally good at are:
- Data visualization: I build beautiful interactive data visualizations from scratch (that means no Tableau or Power BI). I deploy things in pure JS, HTML and CSS, optionally using a lightweight web framework—like Svelte—depending on scale. Portfolio examples on my blog (titles with Viz).
- Scientific advising: I have years of experience as a academic data scientist, which means that I am closly familiar with state-of-the-art methods in various domains. If you have a really hard problem that needs a scientific solution, I might be able to advice you. I am particularly good at solving clustering problems, optimizing supervised machine learning algorithms, making numerical statistical inference, and running simulations. I have domain expertise with various types of network data (social, neural, informational, biological), text data, and mobility data.
- Speaking: I have presented at 20+ events (that I can count) and taught seven university courses for (in aggregate) thousands of students over four years. And I am a pretty good communicator (see this, this, this, and Awards and stipends in my CV). I can give high-level talks about, for example, the value of data, the benefit of data visualization, data science and its applications, and ethics (e.g. responsible AI and unbiased machine learning). I also give more technical lectures explaining concepts in machine learning, network science, complex systems, general data science, etc., adapted to a level of communication that will maximise comprehension.
I am currently exceedingly busy. Beyond a short chat, I am not available for any real work.
