We are very pleased to announce that the Valkuren team is growing. Magnus, our former intern & job student in Data Science, is back with us. We let him introduce himself.
Having recently graduated from a Master’s Degree in Data Science for Decision Making at Maastricht University, I am extremely excited to join the young team at Valkuren as a Junior Data Scientist. Passionate about data-driven decision making and problem solving. I started my higher education studies at Bordeaux University in Mathematics and Computer Science. This gave me the fundamental learnings to further pursue my studies in Data Science, and the motivation to face new challenge in a completely new environment in Maastricht.
During my Master studies I did an internship at Valkuren with a project at the STIB-MIVB on a predictive maintenance project. I helped the Data & Analytics team to design a functional pipeline to predict future wear and tear of tram wheels.
Once my internship came to an end I continued working part-time for Valkuren alongside my Master thesis, and designed the methodology for future data science projects.
I now join Valkuren full-time. The opportunity to jump start my career, continue learning and grow simultaneously with the company was extremely appealing.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
At the end of the day I enjoy to wind down with a book, currently I’m reading Mick Herron’s spy thriller series ‘Slough House’.
Currently I’m spending my evenings finishing up an article on my thesis research for publication. My work proposes a new methodology for the classification of single-cells using a new feature selection algorithm.
Other than that, I enjoy traveling and spending my time outdoors with friends.
