I am a current professional certificate student in the Earth Data Analytics Foundations program. Having worked in data analytics and consulting across the energy industry over the past five years, I have become immensely interested in spatial science and its applications, which started after coming across spatial packages such as Leaflet and Raster in R whilst undertaking a project modeling transport fuels demand in Australia.
During my professional career, I have worked on a wide diversity of energy analytics projects spanning from modeling and forecasting oil and LNG demand to developing cost-benefit models for the electricity and renewables sector. My professional development goal is to develop my knowledge and applicable skills in spatial data science and look for new ways to build capacity combining my existing knowledge of economics & econometrics with spatial sciences in my current job working as a Senior Economics Consultant.
I have a BA in Political Science and an MA in International Affairs, with the intention to pursue an MS in Applied Economics or Data Science in the Fall of 2021 after completing the Earth Data Analytics certificate.
