Bérengère Gautier, Ph.D in Economic Geography, freelance data scientist
Academic experience in Economic Geography
I did my Ph.D in the University of Lausanne, 2012. I spent 8 years in academics, starting from the University of Montpellier (France); then Avignon (France) and Lausanne (Switzerland), to the University of Paris Pantheon Sorbonne (France) in 2012. During this years, I worked on the connection between agrofood multinational corporations and the economic development and integration of European and South Mediterranean cities. I received for this work the second accessit of an International regional science award for thesis in French-language: Prix Aydalot. You can find my Ph.D thesis in french here: https://serval.unil.ch/resource/serval:BIB_942F9B17ECDC.P001/REF
During these years, I also taught Statistics at the University to students, and I managed workshops in R for social science researchers. My favorite topic were social network analysis (SNA) and multivariate analysis, because I love to explore data and to find non-obvious relationships between the variables I’m analysing.
Institutional experience in socio-economic analysis
After this experience, I moved to the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry to work as a territorial analyst and as a consultant in market research for small IT companies. I learned to find statistics solutions for my clients and to communicate my results. I used mainly Microsoft Excel and some open source tools to visualise data.
Experience in big data and programmatic marketing
I moved to Berlin in 2015, where I worked for almost 2 years as a data scientist, to optimise and analyse marketing campaigns at nugg.ad/ Zalando Media Solutions. I discovered Hadoop and Scala environment and I have perfected my techniques in R.
