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 two dogs! I intend to share with you interesting and valuable materials about data science, data engineering, project management.
