As a Mathematical Engineer, I have a background in data science. During my study for this degree at the KU Leuven, I developed a passion for creating smart Machine Learning algorithms. Since I started working at InfoFarm, I got my certificate as an AWS practitioner and focused mainly on data engineering, namely building Big Data & ML architectures in AWS (using S3, Lambda, Glue, EMR, SageMaker, CloudFormation, QuickSight, etc.).
Furthermore, I am very interested in the business side of data science, or data strategy. That is why I am also regularly involved in the workshops we give. We sit together with companies and search for the optimal way to use data to gain business insights and develop a data strategy.
To end on a personal note: I currently live in the beautiful city of Ghent, where I enjoy drinking a beer with my friends near the water, making beautiful bike rides, or watching movies/tv-series (when I’m not programming in Python of course).
