I’m a portuguese biochemist and a college teacher doing a career move to the data science area. I’m currently in a leave of absence from my institution and almost completed the Data Science Specialization from the Johns Hopkins University based on the Coursera Platform (I will start the capstone project next month).
I’m looking now for remote work opportunities in the field of data science, preferably related with the natural sciences which is my background.
