Hi, I'm Jesper. Thanks for passing by my page!
In 2019, I decided I want to break my career trajectory into working in oil & gas. Best decision of my life.
Now, I'm a Scientist for Machine Learning at the ECMWF, improving weather forecasts in Europe using ML.
I didn't want everything I learned in my degrees on geophysics and applied ML, as well as, projects from medical imaging, over trains, to satellites to be locked up in my head, so I write articles here and insights on Twitter and LinkedIn. You can also read my long-form writing in the form of books and research papers.
2 years ago, I started writing a newsletter, where I share awesome ML projects, papers, and shenanigans every week. It's genuinely fun to write and I love sending out every new issue.
This year, I also made Youtube Partner and while I struggle to make videos consistently, I love experimenting with the medium and constantly improving my craft. I tend to publish my talks and presentations about Python and ML there, or at least add them to playlists. Also, this lead to Skillshare reaching out to me to publish classes on data science, which has been much more successful than I ever imagined.
In 2022, I became a fellow of the Software Sustainability Institute, as I'm incredibly passionate about coding and helping researchers make better code easier. My fellowship is about reproducibility in real-world machine learning, but I have been talking and teaching about code for quite a while now.
On this path, I was lucky enough to meet many lovely people in amazing places. My fondest memories were made living in Edinburgh, Hamburg and travelling Malaysia for two months.
If you'd like to collaborate or have me speak at your event, please reach out, but let's make sure our values align.
