I’m Catherine Gitau and this is my personal website where I write about all things data science, machine learning, deep learning and NLP.

I wear a lot of hats and still figuring out what exactly I want to focus on in my DS/ML career but all in all I consider myself a data and applied research scientist. I’m somewhere in between research and production where I find solutions to practical and real-life problems and implementing them. But at the same time, I also enjoy doing data science to generate business insights and build products around them. So, welcome aboard and buckle up! This is my journey into self discovery 😁

While you’re still here feel free to..

  • Check out my blog posts.
  • Have a look at other articles I’ve written on my Medium.
  • Look at some of the things I have worked on in Projects or on github
  • Peep my CV.

You can reach out to me on       twitter or       if you’d like to collaborate on a project, comment on my blog posts or even just to say Hi 🙋 :)
