I mostly develop in Python. Most of my code is online. I’ve been tutoring in the Machine learning course by Prof. Andrew Ng (Coursera, Stanford University). It is, to my knowledge, the biggest Machine Learning MOOC (100.000+ students).


I enjoy reading books of the following genres: travel diaries, anthropology, and literature. I like photography, design and playing with LEGO bricks. I also like teaching: stimulating Eureka! moments, challenge my students, provide them with effective examples of concepts/tools. I love to pick a marker and approach a whiteboard to visualise problems. I come from a working-class background.
