What is your position today?
I am currently a Data Scientist at Veltys, a young and fresh Paris-based consulting firm that provides data-driven analyses for econometrical and/or statistical issues that our clients may have.
Adventuring into the unknown, that is what it is all about. It was April 16, the day when thinking of courses was over and a new period was about to start: writing my own thesis. I had no clear idea of what I was going to write about, but I already knew that in around two months I was going to be on the stage presenting and defending my research in front of three critical committee members. Luckily, I had already completed a step; I had an advisor.
- Where did you do your internship and what was your role ?
I did my internship as a Junior Data Scientist at Airbus Helicopters in Marignane, in the Southeast of France,and lived in Marseille (much better suited to student life!) I had two main missions: one was analysing the aircrafts’ behavior while in flight, the other was forecasting the deliveries of new aircrafts. I was assigned to the Oil and Gas market for the first mission and worked with a very large dataset (around 30 billion observations) to study the helicopters that were transporting people from the continent to the oil platforms. For Airbus, understanding how its aircrafts are being operated is essential in order to produce future aircraft better suited to the needs of the customers.
