Hi there!

I’m Alex Gude, a data scientist with a passion for plots and algorithms, but also cycling and photography. I got my start in the valley at Insight Data Science. In my previous life, I was a high energy particle physicist at CERN and a cosmologist at Lawrence Berkeley Labs.

I write about whatever catches my attention here on this site; mostly that means data science, machine learning, deep learning, and software development related topics. My writings on deep learning from my time at Lab41 can be found at Gab41 and rehosted on this page. If you’re interested in my thoughts in real time, follow me on Twitter: @alex_gude

The code that I write lives on my Github page. Check it out! Bug reports and pull requests welcome!
