This week’s student spotlight introduces you to Taísa de Almeida, student in the Applied MSc in Data Science and AI programme.
Tell us more about your background. I was an Electrical Engineer and got my MSc in Power Systems in Brazil. I worked for many years in the Electrical Power Industry and as a teacher in vocational courses.
Why did you choose to pursue a career in Data Science? Using mathematics to solve problems is something that I was always very excited about. I started to think about a career change and I realised that the things I learned when I was at university could be applied in the data science field. Therefore, I decided to look for a school in France where I could acquire new skills and become a Data Scientist. That’s when I found DSTI!
What did you want to do when you were younger? I wanted to become an Astronaut. It’s never too late, right?
