Welcome to my little corner


My name is Martín Gascón and I am a Data Scientist and former Nuclear Physicist with a passion for science and technology.

What I do



What I do


I work as Data Scientist for Intertek, a multinational company with more than 40,000 employees worldwide. Working for Intertek, I have developed a comprehensive energy database and created INGRID a web application with the largest database on power plant operations. I also analyzed large datasets for numerous energy projects including coal, gas and renewable energies and I have developed programs and algorithms to predict the impact of renewable energy on fossil fuel plants.

As Data Scientist, I like the challenges of finding hidden correlations on large datasets. I enjoy exploring nature and its complicated ways expressing itself. I always thought there were simpler equations to explain complicated phenomena. I enjoy traveling, playing guitar, photography, and overall discovering how things work.




A brief Bio!


A Brief Bio!


This all started when I was 14 after reading "A Brief History of Time" by Stephen Hawking. Captivated and enlightened by this book, I started thinking about human beings and how they are able to explain their universe with such a great detail.

Originally from Argentina, I got my PhD in Nuclear Physics in 2010. My PhD thesis was about detectors for the study of nuclear reactions with radioactive beams at relativistic energies.

As a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University and Research Physicist at Berkeley National Laboratory, I developed radiation detectors for national security applications. I have attended more than 20 international conferences and published 40 articles in peer-review journals.

Almost two years ago, I transitioned into Data Science. I believe, my background gives me an advantage on this task and find exciting the benefits that can be extracted from the almost unexplored world of big data.
