Greetings! I’m Catherine Gitau, and I’m thrilled to welcome you to my personal corner of the web. Here on this site, I delve into the realms of data science, machine learning, deep learning, and the fascinating world of NLP.

By day, I’m a Data Scientist at Visa Inc., where I’m continually honing my skills and expertise. But that’s not where my aspirations end —I’m on a mission to evolve into a full-stack data scientist, bridging the gap between data-driven insights and product creation. My passion lies in not only uncovering business-critical insights through data science but also building impactful products that stem from those insights. This has led me to aspire to become a proficient Machine Learning Engineer, equipped to bring these visionary products to life. I’m also engrosed in NLP research, with a unique focus on African languages.

So, whether you’re interested in the intricacies of data science, machine learning and deep learning, or curious about the potential of NLP, you’ve arrived at the perfect destination. Join me as we unravel insights, build innovations, and explore the frontiers of technology together!
