Thomas Kolasa

Hi there, I'm Thomas.

After working in data-driven econometric consulting, I fully immersed myself in my technical education and completed a three-month coding bootcamp.

I am merging my statistics and programming skills as a data science fellow at NYC Data Science Academy and looking for a dedicated and ambitious team to join as a data scientist.
