Hello there! My name is Alexander and I'm working at Bright Cape as a Data Scientist. With a background in International Business and East Asian studies, a PhD in Econometrics and first entrepreneurial experiences as Co-Founder of a Data Consulting Start-Up, I thrive in challenging, multi-dimensional projects. I am passionate about mining insights and knowledge from data sets to enable businesses and organizations to develop their full potential. I am striving to bridge the gap between scientific insights and business needs. 

Outside of the office, I like to keep my mind and body active. I am a sports enthusiast, music lover, and the nerdy guy who enjoys reading self-management, business, and philosophy books way too much. Besides a few academic research projects that I pursue in my spare time, I enjoy spending the remaining time having inspiring conversations over a few great cups of coffee.
