$ whois david?
I'm a Data Scientist at Booking.com, working in Amsterdam 🇳🇱 . I hold a PhD in Computing Science from the University of Glasgow in Scotland 🏴 .
- I co-authored Tango with Django, so you may be able to tell I have a particular interest in web technologies. 📖
- I like to build and engineer software from the ground up, and think about how different components fit together. I helped engineer a prototype system at Microsoft, and it got patented! So I must be good at that. 🏗️
- I'm the main developer on the LogUI project, a prototype system developed at TUDelft that focuses on the logging of user interactions in a web-based environment. It won an award at ECIR 2021! 🎉
- I really like drawing pictures in Adobe Illustrator, and visualising complex things with Illustrator, too. 🎨
- I like to do science, specifically when looking at how people behave and interact with search engines, and extracting insights from lots and lots of numbers. 🧪
- I also like teaching and doing talks about things, whether it be about my research, or about more squishy things in life, like my experiences of doing x, y or z. It's good to share! 👨🏫
