First is Jochem van Kempen, Lead Data Scientist at Connected Energy, who has been a part of our Newcastle-upon-Tyne office for two years.
His route to Connected Energy is one of the many examples within our diverse team of a journey that didn’t necessarily seem like he was heading toward data science for a battery energy storage company…
Jochem said: “I studied Biology and then went on to do a Masters program and PhD in Neuroscience, after that, I worked as a researcher for a few years, before deciding academia wasn’t for me.
“I was keen to find a role where I could develop myself in an industry I believe in, eventually leading me to join Connected Energy.
“Although it sounds like an unconventional career path, statistical methods and data science techniques combined with domain knowledge in neuroscience translated well to battery data analysis.”
