My name is Martina, I am a data scientist by profession and a general data lover - I have always been fascinated by the idea of extracting quantitative information, challenge assumptions, prove facts. Data science is sometimes a difficult proposition, I like helping others enter the field or understand how to use data to solve a problem, I enjoy sharing what I have learned myself with people.
Because I love public speaking (on technical and non-technical topics, I've done a bunch of talks, you can see them here.
I come from science, having done some academic research (in Physics, but I applied methods of statistical mechanics/complex systems to linguistics, studying the evolution of natural language), you can see my publications here.
🖊I wrote a bunch of notes on data science topics, it's a GitBook called Tales of Science and Data.
- Other than analysing data, I also love displaying it in appealing ways: I do hand-drawn data vizzes, the project is called "doodledatcard" (Behance, Instagram, Twitter) - I am learning a lot about the best ways to visualise info & design!
