Lead Data Scientist OSBeehives
Javier Andrés spent his childhood and early adulthood in Madrid, Spain, where he was born. There, he also went to the Universidad Politécnica and got a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Telecommunication Engineering. During Andrés’ Master’s courses and thesis, he specialized in signal processing and grew interested in machine learning as he developed an algorithm that could operate a robotic arm based on an EEG signal captured from the user with a headset.
After he graduated from his Master’s in Digital Signal Processing, Andrés was working as an academic in Spain in the fields of Operations Research and Biometrics. In June 2017, he dropped out of his Ph.D. program and moved to the Bay Area to work as a Data Scientist for Zippia, a career company that helps people find the right job for them, and later founded OSBeehives, with the mission of helping the beekeeping industry overcome its current difficulties with the use of technology.
Andrés also considers himself a finance enthusiast, having studied all of Professor Damodaran’s material. This interest has driven some interesting projects such as his own Investment Club.
