How I put change in motion

As a Data Science Consultant, my job is to analyze and find patterns in big data, which is no trivial task. I separate insightful patterns from the noise in companies’ databases and find answers in the numbers. The work does not start and stop with the analysis; I make sure our client is asking the right questions and guide them through the insights using data visualization.

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the government of Sweden needed up-to-date information about people’s travel within cities and across the country and region. We collaborated with Nordic telecom company Telia, using the anonymized and aggregated signaling patterns from mobile phones for insight on how people move across the Nordics region.

I gained valuable expertise from being involved in so many different steps of the solution—communicating with Telia, analyzing their needs and data and even creating compelling, interactive data dashboards.

My team included Engagement Lead Petter Bohman, who led our team and focused on data visualization, and Applied Intelligence Consultant Emma Myresten, who worked on data analytics.

A day in my life

I spend my time working with data, trying to find new ways of looking at it to see hidden insight. I also work with brilliant colleagues to bounce around ideas with whenever I can. Taking part in the ever-present dialogue with a project’s main stakeholders is also a vital part of my day. Communication is as important as the data analysis.

The sense of community we have in Applied Intelligence in Sweden is remarkable. I feel lucky to know and work besides so many smart, driven people.

I work remotely, and the moment I log off, I hop on my bike. In the winter, I trade the bike for ice hockey equipment. Stockholm has a good music scene as well, so going to concerts is a big joy of mine.

My advice

Perhaps it’s a cliché, but never cease to be curious! It is both a curse and blessing, but a data scientist’s job is never over. There is always new data and more ways of analyzing it, and remaining curious will mean you’ll see a bigger part of the picture.
