👋 I’m Gökhan.
I have 15 years of experience working in enterprise, open-source/non-profit (Quanteda Initiative), and academic settings. I am currently the Head of Data & Analytics at a London based tech scaleup. I am also a Senior Visiting Fellow at the Data Science Institute, LSE.
I enjoy mentoring data engineers, research scientists, and business analysts to maximise their impact. Since 2020, I have been assisting the Tech Talent Charter to run and analyse their annual Diversity in Tech survey.
I am a computational social scientist by training and publish research on gender bias, academic indicators, behavioural interventions in surveys, and armed conflict dynamics.
It is the chief characteristic of the religion of science that it works. —Asimov
