Musings of a data scientist

Welcome to Data Tricks, my website all about data science, analytics and visualisations.

I graduated in engineering but have been working in the field of statistics and data science for over 10 years. My expertise covers a wide range of data science techniques including machine learning and clustering, and I also specialise in item response theory, Rasch models and psychometrics. I have a passion for great visualisations and much of this blog is dedicated to the art of visualising data.

I use the R programming language for most of my projects, but also use Photoshop, Illustrator and CSS styling in a lot of visuals.

If you need any help with any of the above, please get in touch.
