Marysia is a data scientist at GoDataDriven. She completed her Master's degree in Artificial Intelligence at the University of Amsterdam, where she specialized in machine learning. Her research was focused on data-efficient deep learning. Applying this research on medical images at a company kickstarted her career at the crossroads of academia and industry. This left her with a strong theoretical foundation in machine learning and data science. As well as an understanding of and real-world experience with what it entails to bring a project to production.
She thoroughly enjoys spreading knowledge to help others to improve their data science skills. Even more so, she is always eager to learn from and be inspired by her peers. To facilitate this, in addition to her work at GoDataDriven, she organizes regular Python/data science meetups in and around Amsterdam as well as a yearly conference. The conference proceeds are used to directly support the development of open source tools in the Python scientific computing ecosystem.
