Andrea Coifman

Andrea is a Senior Data Scientist at Devoteam, where she works on different data engineering and data science cloud-based projects. Previously, Andrea was working as Machine Learning Software Engineer at Qlik. During that time, she was a major contributor to the development of algorithms for ML-based augmented analytics in the Advanced Analytics team, delivering the very first Machine Learning capabilities in Qlik's cloud-based platform including their K-Means algorithms and Mutual Information function.

Andrea's passion for music and photography led her to pursue a career in Audio-Visual Engineering with a focus on Computer Vision technologies. Her first work as Data Scientist had a focus on Visual/Acoustic Emotion Recognition systems. With her different experiences and diverse background, she enjoys using her creativity to improve data-driven solutions with the latest technologies.

Aside from her work, she spends time creating Data Science content in multiple social media platforms for all levels of interest.

Given the vast amount of resources we have online on becoming a data scientist, it is only natural to feel overwhelmed and lost. Those who manage to start a career in the field, eventually spend majority of the time trying to find their dreamed (non-existent) position [Financial Times, 2017]. I am not here to give you extra unnecessary resources, I am here to showcase how you can leverage your interests to achieve a successful data science career. Bring passion, curiosity and a computer. You need no more!
