Aspiring data engineer and part-time wordsmith


Code for Germany


Hi, looking for me 😷?

A humanities major by trade, I have never been apologetic of gaining experiences in different fields of work, always on the lookout for the one thing that fascinates me the most. Through working with data-driven NGOs in the past, I have discovered my love for working with data and decided to dedicate all my energy breaking into data engineering.

Currently, I am getting my feet wet as a data engineer for a volunteer project run by CorrelAid, an international network of over 1500 data scientists helping NGOs getting the most out of their data. When I am not contributing to other open source projects or further improving my coding skills, I love writing about the intersection of R and Python, thus making my own contribution to making the best out of both worlds.

I am an advocate for open data and write a monthly newsletter for Code for Germany, shining the spotlight on the most recent developments in the world of open data. Showing non-experts what is possible with data is one of my foremost goals. I have created the twitter account @datenschatz to create a platform for data projects from Germany. When I am not busy chasing ones and zeros, in my pre-pandemic life I love dancing Cuban salsa and traveling countries that didn’t make it to U.S. News' top 25 best countries in the world.
