Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering and Masters in Robotics & Mechatronics. Currently working as a Data Scientist for ArabiaGIS.
I fell in love with programming during my mechanical engineering degree and decided to pursue a Masters degree with a heavier emphasis on programming. While pursuing my Masters degree, I took a course in genetic machine learning, and fell in love with the whole aspect of Artificial Intelligence. After graduating I decided to pursue a Career in Data Science as it combined all the aspects that I loved. The more I worked as a Data Scientist, the more fond I grew of statistics and how powerful it was. My engineering background helped me to transition into the field of Data Science as it had a heavy emphasis on mathematics and using logical reasoning to solve problems.
If there is one thing that I absolutely love as a Data Scientist, it is the fact that not a day goes by without me learning something new! The field of Data Science is fast paced and every day is filled with new challenges to solve and new techniques to learn and implement!
Finally, the open source nature of Data Science and software development in general, means that i get to collaborate with some of the greatest minds in the world. Everybody shares their experience and ideas together and the community grows together as a whole.
