As a psychometrician, I love data science and the balancing act of science and practice that defines our products at ELIGO. In my private life, I like to play strategy games in which I have to meticulously plan my steps – and I am just as happy at work when an elegant snippet of code leads to the exact output required.

Sometimes scientists change their minds. New developments cause a rethink. If this bothers you, consider how much damage is being done to the world by people for whom new developments do not cause a rethink.
