ADRIAN GUERRERA

Data Scientist & Engineer

ABOUT ME

I’m an inquisitive and continuous learner. As a result, I’m a lot of things, a Chemical Engineer, Researcher, Programmer, Entrepreneur, Day Trader, Maker, Growth Hacker and aspiring Data Scientist.

My time as a chemical engineer and project manager has provided me with an astute business mindset and adept knowledge in process optimisation, change management and lean methodologies.

My curiosities now lie in the distant future, to the future of work, of smart machines and the engineering of knowledge. Having recently completed General Assembly’s Data Science Course, my plan is to become a Knowledge Engineer, leveraging Data Science and Process Engineering to gain deeper insights, innovate and help shape our future.
