About Me
I used to manage the teaching of statistics and R programming for the Psychology department at the University of Edinburgh. I am now working freelance, applying machine learning to industrial data using Python and R. I hold a PhD and MSc in Informatics from the University of Edinburgh and a BSc and MSc in Industrial Biotechnology from the Universita' Statale di Milano Bicocca, Italy. I speak English, Italian, French and now a bit of German. I live with my son, and we like hiking, cycling, experimental theatre and indie animation movies.
