I'm Juan, a data guy, who's currently traveling and wandering around the world.
As part of my adventure, I'm logging, reliving, and telling my travel stories through data in a project I named Wander Data.
However, before getting into that train and hostels life, I worked as a Big Data and Machine Learning Engineer at LOVOO, a dating company based in Germany. At LOVOO, I was part of the Antispam team, where my role was writing software and designing systems that use data and machine learning to detect spammers and scammers in the platform and to avoid the proliferation of them.
From the data world, my areas of preferences include working on the complete pipeline of the machine learning system - prototyping, feature selection, and engineering and training - with the purpose of making it ready for production. Furthermore, I am fascinated by finding new ways to quantify several aspects of my life through data, and of course, writing and presenting the results. Lastly, I also enjoy working with unsupervised learning, object detection, and data analytics.
Furthermore, I love speaking publicly and sharing knowledge about what I do at work and about my projects. So, invite me to speak at your event!
My hobbies are photography, bouldering, and writing.
I hold a B.Sc in Computer Science from the University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras Campus, and a M.Sc in Computer Science from Uppsala University, Sweden.
