About Me

Hi there!

My name is Alberto Almuiña. I am an R passionate and a Data Scientist who currently works for ABANCA in the city of A Coruña. I started working with R several years ago and since then it has become my favorite tool. I really enjoy topics like Machine Learning, Deep Learning and Time Series Forecasting. I also like to develop R libraries like bayesmodels, garchmodels or boostime. I’ve also worked with Python, but I have to admit that I don’t feel as comfortable as with R. I also have extensive knowledge of relational databases (such as SQL Server) and ETL tools (such as Informatica PowerCenter)

My favorite subjects are the following:

  • Time Series Forecasting
  • Machine Learning
  • Deep Learning
  • Model Deployment

How was this blog forged?

A few months ago I started actively posting posts on LinkedIn and since then I have gone from 200 followers to more than 4000. For this reason, I have decided to create a blog where I can share with all my thoughts or tricks about R and related topics. On specific occasions there will also be a post about technologies such as Docker or Kubernetes or Machine Learning ‘tricks’ in Python. But in principle, this blog is intended to write about R.

If you have a specific topic you would like me to write about please feel free to reach out. The best option to do so is via my LinkedIn. If you are not yet connected with me, make sure to send me a request. Looking forward to having you join my network!
