Data Scientist & Forex Systems Expert

My name is Kirill Eremenko and I am super-psyched that you are reading this!

I teach courses in two distinct Business areas on Udemy: Data Science and Forex Trading. I want you to be confident that I can deliver the best training there is, so below is some of my background in both these fields.

Data Science

Professionally, I am a Data Science management consultant with over five years of experience in finance, retail, transport and other industries. I was trained by the best analytics mentors at Deloitte Australia and today I leverage Big Data to drive business strategy, revamp customer experience and revolutionize existing operational processes.

From my courses you will straight away notice how I combine my real-life experience and academic background in Physics and Mathematics to deliver professional step-by-step coaching in the space of Data Science. I am also passionate about public speaking, and regularly present on Big Data at leading Australian universities and industry events.

Forex Trading

Since 2007 I have been actively involved in the Forex market as a trader as well as running programming courses in MQL4. Forex trading is something I really enjoy, because the Forex market can give you financial, and more importantly - personal freedom.

In my other life I am a Data Scientist - I study numbers to analyze patterns in business processes and human behaviour... Sound familiar? Yep! Coincidentally, I am a big fan of Algorithmic Trading :) EAs, Forex Robots, Indicators, Scripts, MQL4, even java programming for Forex - Love It All!


To sum up, I am absolutely and utterly passionate about both Data Science and Forex Trading and I am looking forward to sharing my passion and knowledge with you!

Professional Artist

My name’s Patrycja Jeleniewicz, I was born in Poland, but I grew up in Italy where I deeply enjoyed attending an awesome Art Academy for five years and where I started my life as a professional artist.

I had the pleasure of learning from great art teachers various subject and experiment many techniques. I also, worked side by side with different artist, ever since my academic journey, and participated in numerous contest and exhibitions. 

As a young person passionate about art I found my way to improve myself, improve my art, promote it and share results and my knowledge with other art lovers.

If you're reading this you must be one of them and I'm grateful you've found this platform to fulfil your curiosity and passion.

I have plenty of experience to offer when it comes to history of art, various techniques (watercolour, acrylic, oil painting, all sorts of pastels and pencils, ink, pottering, sculpturing..just to mention few), digital programs related and helpful for artist ( Photoshop, Auto cad, Lightroom, Palletton, ..), social media and ways to promote your art as well. And I can't wait to share it with you!

Now I’m located in Brisbane (Australia), where I work mostly on private commissions and teach privately people who love make art.
