Hi! 👋🏽

I'm Daniela, a Data Scientist from Uruguay – a charming little country in South America, which I also call home.

Originally an Economist with a brief stint in academia, my journey took a pivotal turn at Equifax, where I discovered my passion for Data Science. This led to a venture into a startup focused on Natural Language Processing and Social Media data, eventually bringing me to a significant role in revamping the Uruguayan Social Security System using R and Shiny. Over the last 11 years, I've immersed myself deeply in Data Science.

Discovering R-Ladies was a watershed moment for me. It spurred a personal commitment to foster a more inclusive world – a mission I've been dedicated to ever since. Starting as a co-founder of the R-Ladies Buenos Aires chapter, I then co-founded the Montevideo chapter. The joy of building this community led to the birth of GURU::MVD, the R User Group in Montevideo. More recently, I've joined the Global team as the head of Social Media and am involved in organizing LatinR, nurturing a vibrant Latin American community.

Welcome to my blog! This is my little corner for diving into data science, where I share my discoveries and experiences. Admittedly, since becoming a mom, my blog posts have become a bit like a rare comet sighting – not as frequent as they used to be! But I'm excited to pick up where I left off and start sharing more with you all again soon.

I hope you enjoy reading my posts as much as I enjoy writing them. Feel free to leave comments and connect with me on Mastodon. 🙂
