Data Scientist

31 years old
Torino Italia
Freelancer Open to opportunities
As a freelance data scientist I take care of the flow that transforms data into information. In 2019 I have co founded VanLog, a team of data scientists providing data science training and full stack data science solutions using open source techniques. Typically all our projects provide the client with new functionalities embodied in private new R packages, and are accompanied with training on the job sessions.
All the tools that are needed to understand and communicate data are part of our business, from statistical modeling to DevOps techniques, from report automation to creation of data applications and integration via API.

I have a wide experience in R and statistics training, especially teaching to a non technical audience. I have developed and taught academic frontal lessons as well as corporate training classes.
Finally, I am the organizer of several R related events (workshops, meetings, learnathons). In 2020 I was the chair of e-Rum2020, the main European R conference, planned in Milano and turned into the larger virtual R conference ever, with 2.000 attendees and ~150 speakers from all around the world.
