Data Science Consulting & Training
You have data. I'm a data scientist. Let me help you gain more insight, make better decisions, and build smarter products. No matter where you're located, what market you operate in, or what stage you're at, I'd love to hear about you and your data. Simply drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll take it from there.
I'm an assistant professor of data science at Tilburg University. As an independent consultant and trainer, I help organizations making sense of their data. Previously, I was a data scientist at Elsevier in Amsterdam and startups YPlan and Outbrain in New York City. I have an MSc in artificial intelligence from Maastricht University and a PhD in machine learning from Tilburg University. Recently, I wrote a book titled Data Science at the Command Line, which was published by O'Reilly Media. My LinkedIn profile provides a more detailed overview of my background.
Areas of Expertise
Data visualization and analysis
I currently offer three hands-on, full-day courses aimed at data scientists and engineers:
Data Science at the Command Line
Introduction to Machine Learning with Python
Visualizing and Analyzing Data with R
Besides these predefined courses, I can also deliver a custom course based on any of the technologies listed in the about section. To make the course more engaging and relevant, I can incorporate custom use cases based on your data and day-to-day challenges.
Jeroen came to our offices in Barcelona to deliver a one-day workshop on command-line tools for data science. I believe a lot in command-line tools to increase productivity, as well as giving access to data to the different teams, not only data analysts. Besides demonstrating a good knowledge and experience in command line tools for data science, Jeroen has very good training skills, his communication is clear, and he'll manage to adapt the level of the training to the level of the audience, which is not always easy!Marc Canaleta, CTO at Social Point
One of the most important skills of a data scientist is exploration: of a new data set, or of new results produced by modeling. The UNIX philosophy of simple tools, each doing one job well, then cleverly piped together, is embodied by the command line. Jeroen expertly discusses how to bring that philosophy into your work in data science, illustrating how the command line is not only the world of file input/output, but also the world of data manipulation, exploration, and even modeling.Chris H. Wiggins, Associate Professor in the Department of Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics at Columbia University and Chief Data Scientist at The New York Times
Jeroen is a great person to have on your team—not only has he built our event recommendation system and helped the team with every-day questions around our customers and data but he also organized a Python meetup at our NYC office, wrote a book (no small feat!), and performed in an occasional beat-boxing competition here and there.Viktoras Jucikas, Founder and CTO at YPlan
