    Data Science

    We view data science as a powerful tool for making decisions. Data gives us the ability to harness past experiences and knowledge to understand and predict future events. With enough data – such as the microbiome of thousands of people or flight data from electric VTOL aircraft – we can quickly develop new and crucial answers to give our companies an edge in moving quickly in the right direction.

    From high-level questions to detailed problems, our resident data scientist Francisco Gimenez can give you hands-on help.
