HI! My name is Robert, and I have always had two personalities - data scientist and instructor. As a data scientist, I spent five years in Swedish academia and five years within Austrian banking groups. During these years, I understood that having an intuitive and authentic understanding of the field counts the most to deliver worthwhile projects. As for my instructor persona, you can hear my voice on numerous platforms that helped thousands of students grow into the topics of data science, research, business, and math. Examples include several universities, MBA programs, localization of KhanAcademy, and even custom-tailored corporate training. Nowadays, I hope to liberate and democratize the knowledge of the fields I love as much as possible! I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge and passion with you the same way I did with hundreds of business professionals and data scientists that I trained.
