Hi there! I’m Simon and I’m a data scientist and remote sensing / GIS / spatial statistics specialist. I have experience in management and R&D proposal preparation. At the same time I’m a bboy, acrobat and proud owner of a dog and a small family of bunnies! I intend to share with you interesting and valuable materials from data science, data engineering, project management and lifestyle fields.

I participate in conferences, workshops and engineering talks and I’m writing to professional magazines. Here is a list of my activities:
