Nice to meet you! I am Marie Braem, senior data scientist at Bright Cape. I have a background in dietetics, public health, scientific research (epidemiology) and finance. I have a PhD in Cancer Epidemiology; investigating the effects of nutrition, lifestyle and genetics on the development of cancer. After my PhD I started in the food industry (clinical nutrition) and thereafter I continued my career in the insurance business. At Achmea I first worked as a data scientist and then became manager of several Data Science teams. Now, at Bright Cape, I am able to combine all my experience to deliver the highest impact possible with data & analytics for our clients.
As every Belgian, I am a real “Bourgondiër”. I really enjoy good food & drinks. I also like to travel and discover new things. I adore shopping, wellness and “gezelligheid”! To compensate for all the delicious food and drinks, I often exercise. I do bootcamp, race biking and hiking.
I really like challenges. So every year at least one new challenge pops up. This year, I will be walking “de Dodentocht”, a hiking trip of 100km in 1 day.
