Hi I’m Andresa, I’m 32 (but I might not be tomorrow, who knows when I’m going to update this blog again).
I’m Brazilian (from this city) but I currently live in Toronto, Canada.
I have a bachelor degree in Statistics from University of Campinas and a specialization from Ryerson University in Big Data and Predictive Analytics. I am planning on starting a master degree in the next few years (fingers crossed).
When I graduated from school, I worked for around 2 years as a data analyst for a bank called Itau in Brazil. I have been working in digital marketing since 2012 when my husband and I decided to move to Canada.
During these years as a marketing analyst I have accumulated Omniture and Google Analytics knowledge (being certified in this last one) and a lot of enthusiasm towards programming (my favorites are python and R, but I can play with php and html) and data mining (Sas, hadoop, MySQL).
For the past 3 years I have been working as a data scientist which is something I really enjoy doing.
I am passionate about helping people to solve problems and using data to do so.
I play a lot of video game, but not any game, this one particularly splatoon. I also spend a lot of time reading because as you can see I learned English when I was very old so I need to read a lot in order to improve it.
My favorite sports/outdoor activities are biking and playing volleyball (indoor and outdoor).
I’m crazy about data, stats and learning anything related to data analysis.
