Hi, I am a Data Scientist at the Volkswagen Data Lab. I did my master’s degree in statistics, since the beginning of my studies I program in R for universities and different jobs. I am very experienced at applying machine learning algorithms as well as data wrangling/cleaning in R. Currently I extend my Big Data programming skills (Hive, Spark, etc.) and take part in numerous kaggle challenges.
