Aberdeen Python User Group Oct 2021
A monthly meeting of the Aberdeen Python user community. A talk or two then a practical session of using Python in small teams.
Speaker: Arturo Regalado - "Automate the boring and focus on the exciting"
Details: In this chat, Arturo will share how he uses Python to automate the boring stuff that keeps him from focusing on the exciting part of business analytics: asking questions and finding answers. The tools: web scraping, web app building, and data wrangling. Finally, he will guide you through a short challenge that will involve cleaning and processing time series.
Bio: Arturo is a doctoral researcher with the University of Aberdeen and the National Decommissioning Centre. His research interest remains in the study of the economic effects of financial security instruments in decommissioning of oil and gas structures. He is an economist and data analyst with five years of experience in processing and interpreting data to give actionable insights to decision makers. His previous experience in the energy sector includes market advisory on oil and natural gas markets with special emphasis in modelling energy demand-supply outlooks as well as financial modelling of upstream activity. He has also worked for the Mexican Government in agencies like the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the National Anticorruption System where he developed predictive and machine-learning models to increase evidence-based decision making for the public sector. He holds a MSc in Petroleum, Energy Economics and Finance from the University of Aberdeen, where he studied the effects of auction design on investment and deployment of renewable energy projects, and a BA in Economics from the National Autonomous University of Mexico.
