PhD in Physics focused on Network science. I studied the robustness of infrastructural networks, and how the topology of social networks affects their capacity to spread diseases, beliefs and rumours. I have been a visiting researcher at CAIDA (Center for Applied Internet Data Analysis) in San Diego. I am also an external scientific consultant for King Digital Entertainment plc. Interested in adding value to the huge amount of data that our society is generating to change our everyday lives.
PhD Pol Colomer
Co-Founder & co-CEO
PhD focused on Network Science and human mobility at the University of Barcelona, with a stay at MIT working on urban shared mobility solutions. MsC. in computational physics for UPC. I love understanding and modelling complex social / economical phenomena through the traces left by its associated data using also an analytical view for modelling it. I love leading projects and solving real problems with original solutions.
PhD Oleguer Sagarra
Co-Founder & co-CEO
Finishing PhD in Molecular Dynamics at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia. MsC. in computational physics by the University of Barcelona and the UPC. Fluent Python and Fortran speaker. I'm always both wasting and gaining time because of scripting. I keep trying to code life. Currently downloading The Internet at home getting prepared just in case.
MsC Ausias March Calvo Minguillón
PhD in statistical physics and physics of fluids by the Universitat de Barcelona and the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon. I was postdoctoral researcher at Clark University (MA, USA). I quitted purely academic world to work as a data scientist in a consultancy firm. There I applied machine learning and big data techniques to sales forecasting, and I worked developing R+D projects on innovative tools for the electric sector related to extreme weather events and critical infrastructure security. The more we understand the vast amount of data that surround us, the easier it will be to reduce the prejudice and unscientificism of our society.
PhD Xavier Clotet i Fons
Lead Data Scientist
MSc in Physics of Complex Systems from the Universitat de les Illes Balears. Halfway through a PhD in Network Science at Universitat de Barcelona, exploring the interplay between memory and topology in socioeconomic interactions. Problem spotter and solver of problems. Hopeful about bridging the gap between academia, industry and society.
MsC Xavier Hoffmann
Graduate in physics by the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) and MSc. in predictive modeling and data science by the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica (CRM) - UAB. Machine learning algorithms consultant with experience in big data projects made for retail, bank and finances, logistics and transport and pharmaceutical industry. Interested in the deep understanding of the data that society generates, as a previous step to find accurate solutions to present-day problems.
MsC Carlos Gil
Lead data scientist
Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics, M.Sc. in Computational Physics, Bachelor in Physics. Having long experience from design to delivery of research projects built around mathematical modeling and programming techniques (focused on Complex Systems), I enjoy implementing my scientific expertise to solve complex problems based on data sets, developing models and associated markers for estimates and forecasts.
PhD Nikos Kouvaris
PhD in mathematics and major in computer science for Autonomous university of Barcelona (UAB) with a research stay in the University of Copenhague. I work as data scientist specialized in neural networks and teach machine learning and deep learning courses at UOC and UAB universities.
PhD Toni Lozano
Machine learning specialist
Doctor in physics by the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and specialized in theoretical astrophysics. After finishing my time in academia, I worked in the U.S. as a business intelligence analyst in a non profit foundation. There, I used and analyzed all their available data to provide solutions for daily problems as well as to solve future challenges and projects. Now I´m interested in applying all my previous experience to work towards solving real life problems for companies.
PhD Núria Vinyoles Vergés
Graduate in Mathematics and Physics by the University of Barcelona and MSc in Artificial Intelligence by the Pompeu Fabra University. I have experience in research and have worked as a consultant for more than two years. I love designing and developing applications that help people and companies take advantage of data.
MsC Albert Iribarne
PhD in physics at the Max Planck institute for the structure and dynamics of matter in Hamburg, Germany, with a focus on method development for the approximate solution of the quantum many-body problem. I am excited to apply techniques of abstraction and modeling as well as my mathematical skills to real-life problems. Believing that data science will have a huge impact on our societies, I am convinced that the job as a data scientist is a perfect combination of challenge, fun and the chance to contribute to a fairer future.
