How can I help?
My name is Joseph Walkenhorst and I'm a data scientist based in Melbourne, Australia. I've been working in the finance industry for almost 15 years, solving problems using data in risk, pricing, products, customer and human resources.
What motivates me is using data analysis to optimise organisations at scale, by unlocking otherwise unknown insights, or testing existing hypotheses, and applying new knowledge gained to improve the way the organisation operates.
During my career I've managed projects, led teams, wrangled and analysed data and presented findings, designed and interpreted test and learns (A/B tests), built statistical and machine learning models, applied quantitative algorithms, built sophisticated quantitative systems and various other tools using a variety of programming languages and software, such as R, Python, SAS, Tableau, VBA, Excel and Jupyter Notebook.
I have a Bachelor of Engineering in Robotics and Mechatronics, with honours, a Bachelor of Applied Science in Computer Science and Software Engineering, and a Master of Data Science, with first class honours.
