He holds a masters degree in Statistics from KU Leuven, Belgium and a bachelor degree in Computer Engineering from University of Pune, India. He has worked as a software developer for 3 years at TIBCO Software. In the near future, he intends to bridge the gap between statistical research and practice using software tools.
Sarah is currently working as a data scientist at Xccelerated. She is interested in visualising information as simple and beautiful as possible, to help people better understand our data-driven world. During her Ph.D research on Systems Biology of Ageing at University Medical Center Groningen, she built an R Shiny web application that visualises different types of data on mouse experiments interactively.
