y full name is María Aránzazu and maybe you know me as María or Arantza. I am an Project Officer at the European Commission – Joint Research Centre. At the JRC, I am contributing to support the implementation of geovisualization on strategies for detecting and preventing fraud in the food chain & illicit consumer products on the European Market.
I tell stories through the creation of interactive data visualizations. My data science background is wielded to find thinking out of the box and not-so-obvious insights within the data, prepare the data and be thoughtful about the visual representation of statistical nuances within the data. I am also passionate about teaching data visualization and other topics via workshops and corporate training.
In my career, I have worked on projects involving a wide variety of problems including but not limited to interactive data visualizations, exploratory data analysis, corporate data tool creation, course development, training/instruction, and ideation.
If you feel like I’m the woman for a project, get extra information on my research or work, ask me about this site or just say hello then… I would love to hear from you, let’s get down to business. Contact me!
