Playing with data

"I really like playing with data and enjoy the challenge of conveying complex subject matter in a clear way. After completing my PhD research in physics, I knew this was something I wanted to do in a faster-paced environment and in sector with great social relevance. Working at Gupta enables me to do this and, at the same time, I have the opportunity to continue developing in other areas as well. It is extremely motivating to know that our analyses contribute to improving healthcare."

Ambitious and laid-back

"We’re a small team, so you quickly get to know everyone. From day one I felt at home at Gupta. People are not only committed to their work, they are also committed to the team and are always ready to lend each other a helping hand. So I learned a lot in a short period of time. Aside from working hard here, we also have really good fun together."
