Prior to joining the Barcelona GSE Data Science program I completed my undergraduate degree in Economics at the University of Sussex, where I also worked as a research assistant on topics in Health Economics for 2 years. I am now working as a Statistician in Epidemiological and Clinical Research in collaboration with major hospitals in Barcelona, on topics ranging from predictive models for clinical prognostic applications to causal modelling for understanding disease specific population mortality. 

Interview

The Master's Degree in Data Science is an exceptional program. World class experts and a gold standard curriculum aside, it demands creativity and encourages exploration of individual interests in both technical skills and applications. The result is an incredibly inspiring and collaborative environment where you are pushed to use and combine individual strengths to innovate, and learn not only from the lecturers but also your peers. In the end everyone graduates with unique but equally impressive skillsets and initiate their careers in a highly diverse array of fields. I really look forward to continuing to learn from the people that I shared the most rewarding year of my life with yet.
