I am Thomas Huijskens, born in the US but brought up in The Netherlands. I am a Data Scientist at QuantumBlack, and I work and live in London. I’m using this site to occasionally share some of my personal insights and opinions about the world of data science.
I graduated with distinction from the University of Oxford with a masters degree in statistics. Before moving to the fields of statistics and data science, I was mainly interested in stochastic calculus, numerical methods and financial mathematics. I have a BSc degree in Applied Mathematics with distinction from Delft University of Technology, in which I focused heavily on these subjects.
I have also published a paper in these fields, and if you are really interested in that you can read the pre-print here, and find the final published version at the Journal of Computational and Applied Mathematics (paywall).
