Before the Master, I was a man of many hats :) I was part of a consulting group that supported many companies in Latam, I had an administrative role (development director) in a business school in Argentina and I was lecturer in that same university. After the master, I joined the Innovation Center of Advance Analytics for Accenture in Barcelona, which focuses on bringing advanced analytics solutions to global clients’ business problems. I am currently a Data Science Manager at Accenture Applied Intelligence practice, and I have a leading role in Health Analytics in Europe.

Interview

I was part of the first cohort from the Barcelona GSE Master in Data Science (2014-2015). It allow three things: 1) time for the Data Science market and how it will evolved in the next 3 years, thanks to its holistic approach, merging methodologies, techniques and technologies 2) Go beyond just implementing (coding) ML solutions for problems, by allowing me to push at the same time for theoretical and methodological soundness. 3) Provided new friends (fellow alumni from that first cohort) that I have the pleasure to enjoy in my everyday life at my current job.
