Summary

For 10 years, I have been creating value by building concepts and products at the interface between academic research and computational technology first, and then between business and data science. My experiences in biomedical research, HR-tech and consulting allowed me to develop deep scientific skills widened by transversal abilities.

Achievements include expansion of data strategy using proof-of-concepts for national and European-wide companies and development of data science products in production.
