About

Working in a fully distributed company (Automattic), I already write a lot. But I still want to do more of it and this blog is where I want to share my thoughts on working with data in crossfunctional and distributed teams.

My educational background is in Physics and I first got to touch big data during my PhD. At that time, I was part of an international collaboration of scientists who built and operated the neutrino telescope IceCube, and used the data it collected for research in astrophysics.

I joined Automattic soon after leaving academia and have been part of our Data organization ever since. As an individual contributor, I worked on a variety of data science topics like A/B testing, search and recommendations. As a lead of a crossfunctional team, I am responsible for all aspects of my team’s work from engineering over product and project management to people development. I am now excited to start sharing that responsibility with others and help them fill that role.
