{About Us}


We want to make the world a better place, through data. This means helping organizations and individuals to better explore, understand, and use information.

Our primary focuses are consulting and teaching. Though the combination may appear unusual, we approach consulting in the exact same way we approach teaching: with the end goal of empowering the client.

When we consult, we don't just provide answers like traditional consultants - we provide analytical approaches for asking the right questions and tools for uncovering answers.

When we teach, we don't just teach methods like traditional teachers - we teach context and challenge students to think (and learn) on their own.

Data Science for Social Good

As part of our commitment to making our corner of the world just a little better, we offer reduced rates for budget-constrained organizations which are involved in delivering a “social good”. If you are a public sector institution, NGO, academic institution, or public benefit corporation exploring the potential of data science or machine learning to help achieve your mission of making a positive impact in the world, we would love to hear from you!

    I am 20 years old  and I am pursuing my BA in Economics at Lviv Polytechnik National University.  In 2018 I completed an internship in Israel in a healthcare project. During the internship, I had a chance to try myself in various positions. I dedicated myself to exploring cardiovascular diseases and cancer. My main responsibilities were to create interactive data visualization, find insights and build trends. At this point, I found Inspiration in R and its tools. After the internship, I decided to continue my career as a Data Analyst and dive into data and R capabilities. I have participated in Google Science Fair and  three Google Code Ins where I took part in various projects, ranging from web application development to blockchain exploration. My hobbies include reading books, tennis, running . I am a big fan of Formula 1, learning, and sometimes I spend my spare time as a volunteer teaching children coding basics.
