I’m a PhD student living in Toulouse, France 🇫🇷. I’m half British 🇬🇧 and half Belgian 🇧🇪. My university 🎓 background is a mix of maths 🧮, economics 💸, and computer science 🖥️. I began my data science adventure in 2014 after watching Moneyball ⚾ and reading The Signal and the Noise 📖. My PhD is at the intersection of database query optimisation and machine learning 🤖. I’m more of a swiss army knife 🇨🇭 then a one-trick pony 🐴, and I’m keen on building an interest in different topics. As of late, I’m especially interested in online machine learning.
I enjoy writing code and I maintain some open-source projects. In particular, I’m the author of creme, which is a Python 🐍 library for online machine learning. I’m also a Kaggle Master and enjoy competitive data science.
Besides work, I like spending time with my friends and my girlfriend, reading 📚, watching movies 🍿, walking, looking at – and sometimes making – modern art, and cooking 🍲. My favorite food is peanut butter 🥜 and my favorite beer is Guinness ☘️. I have a brother who’s into physics and operating systems. My mother runs a quirky restaurant in the French countryside called the Ziboinboin.
