“From Physics to Data Science – My transition from Academia to Industry”

Martina will talk about how you convince an industry that you are good for them, what skills you need to refine, soft skills you need to leverage, mathematics and numerical abilities and some of the exciting data science projects she is working on at the moment and much more………………

Martina’s Summary

I am a physicist. Coming from a background in Statistical Mechanics, I performed research on quantitative Linguistics, studying how natural language changes in time. I have expertise both in data analysis and mathematical models.
After my PhD, I worked as a Django developer, learning to be a better coder. I am now a Data Scientist, a role which allows me to combine together all the knowledge I gained through my studies and to learn something new every day.
I help extracting information from raw data to derive strategy and take decisions based on facts. My responsibilities range from producing data visualisations and presenting the findings, to running machine learning models and mathematically analysing the results.
