Riccardo Pinosio

Welcome! I am a data scientist and applied mathematical logician.

My current interests are in statistical modeling, machine learning and data visualization (using a combination of R, Python and Javascript). You can check:

  • my linkedin to see the professional projects I worked on
  • my github to see the open source work I am doing
  • this blog for awesome insights on data science and statistical programming :)

I am currently a data scientist at funda.nl, the main online platform for real estate in the Netherlands. Needless to say, all views in this blog are my own.

I obtained a MSc and Phd in mathematical logic from the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation of the University of Amsterdam. During my PhD I mostly worked on issues in the foundations of mathematics and of nonmonotonic reasoning (you can find my PhD thesis here and more info still on my researchgate). I am not currently working actively on those topics, although I still plan to go back to them at some point.

I suppose I should also give you an idea of how I look. Here I am in all my glory:

As you can see I am a typical specimen of male Homo Sapiens, a so-called evolved ape of planet earth. Nothing interesting to see here then, I’m afraid.
