Cristian is currently a Data Science Intern at Øptimus. Prior to joining Øptimus, Cristian completed a chemical engineering research internship with the National Science Foundation where he applied his engineering skills to produce, test, analyze, and optimize cellulose-based membranes for ultrafiltration applications. Soon after this experience, Cristian decided to leverage his data analysis and coding skills to pursue his love for data science. He is experienced with Python, R, MatLab, and SQL.
Cristian is a rising senior at Virginia Commonwealth University (Go Rams!) where he is simultaneously completing two degrees in Applied Mathematics and Chemical Engineering with a minor in Statistics and Physics. He has lived in Northern Virginia for most of his life and is happy to be back working in the area. In his free time, Cristian enjoys following sports, gaming on his xbox, and listening to as many podcasts as possible.
