Martin Held, Data Scientist, Finleap
Martin made his first contact with the great potential of data analysis when he saw how it can be utilised to significantly improve the diagnostics of cancer. Motivated by this early experience he decided to pursue a PhD in the field, setting out to investigate the dynamics of molecular systems using fancy statistical modelling techniques. After finishing his PhD he moved on to a big pharmaceutical cooperation to facilitate the automation of statistical analysis and reporting of pre-clinical research experiments. His next career step took him into a more dynamic environment: an organisation whose mission it is to build and incubate startups. Where he now works on different venture projects tackling a wide range of data related questions, ranging from click through rate optimisation to microservice based data processing.
