About me

I’m a freelance data scientist based in France 🇫🇷🥖 who loves diving into the nitty-gritty of data science projects.

Through my blog posts, I explore various data science topics, providing simple yet detailed explanations. I bring these concepts to life by applying them to real-world use cases, describing the results, and sharing the code on Github.

💬 If you’re interested in collaborating or have any data science project ideas you’d like to discuss, feel free to contact me on Linkedin. I’m always looking for exciting opportunities to put my skills to work.

Why Do I Write Articles?

Writing technical blog posts that include real-world use cases can be time-consuming. Plus, the rapid progress of AI can make the effort seem futile. So why write in this case?

I write technical blog posts for several reasons.

  1. Firstly, I’m an avid data science enthusiast. I always feel the need to go beyond passive reading and get my hands dirty by implementing new concepts and techniques.
  2. But it’s not just about learning for myself. Through my work as a consultant with many companies, I noticed a gap between research and practice. While many research papers showcase great models and approaches, there is often a lack of implementation and real-world examples. I aim to bridge this gap by taking these cutting-edge concepts and applying them to real-world use cases, then sharing my results and code on Github for others to use.
  3. Lastly, I enjoy sharing my knowledge with others. Through my blog posts, I hope to inspire others to explore data science further and empower them to implement these techniques in their own work.
