The world can be a better place if data-driven insights and decision making is accessible to more people. My passion is to spread the use of data science in and outside of my organisation to drive better decisions so that together we can create bigger impact to business and society.
Thus I spend time coaching young data scientists as well as people new to the field via mentoring and training.
Currently, I head a team of data scientists in a global financial institution where my main role is to develop the organisation's data science capability and accelerate the use of data driven insights to create business value.
I have worked in various industries, namely R&D, FMCG, Telco and Finance which gave me the opportunity to work with all sorts of data to solve diverse challenges. I am also interested in innovation and always seek new problems to solve, especially at the intersection of data science, business and technology. I am also active in the startup community as an advisor and mentor, and speak regularly at local and international conferences.
I hold an engineering degree (Hons) in Agronomy, Bio-engineering and Statistics from AgroParisTech, Paris, France (top institute of higher education in life sciences in France), a Masters degree (Hons) in Probability and Statistics from AgroParisTech/ Universite Paris-Sud/Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris, France and a PhD in Biostatistics (Hons) from University Paris-Sud, Paris, France, jointly conducted with Genome Institute of Singapore, A*STAR.
