Applying knowledge to real-world data questions, and learning how others approach a similar problem. Gaining knowledge in the data science field and learning new technologies to answer data-related questions.
Technical. I am mainly interested in technologies, techniques and methods available in data analysis and approach data problems more from a research and empirical perspective than from a business oriented perspective.
Quantitative researcher with a background in experimental psychology, although interests range beyond these. I love converting repetitive tasks into automated processes, and am excited about challenges that an unfamiliar field of research brings.
