Passion data analysis

‘During my Bachelor’s programme Information Studies at Utrecht University I discovered my passion for data analysis. Every time I had to analyse a dataset, I got really excited. Whether it’s an individual or company, helping anyone taking decisions using data is really important to me. My growing passion led up to choosing Data Science at the UvA.’

Great programme

‘The interesting courses combined with the enthusiasm of the lecturers make Data Science a great programme. Besides that, the various backgrounds of other students taught me to think outside IT and to see things in a different way. Furthermore I’ve strengthened my Python skills and learned how to define data science processes and organise projects. I liked the course Statistics, Simulation and Optimisation the most.’


‘The last months I’ve worked as a Business Intelligence Consultant at Incentro. At the moment I’m completing my internship at CBS (Central Bureau for Statistics). For my thesis I’m developing a simple method to calculate the consumer price index using scanner data. Finally, I can put everything I’ve learned into practice. In the future I would love to become a data analyst for a big company and help them grow.’
