About Me

I'm a Software developer-turned-data-Scientist. Even before graduating with an Honors in Business Studies & Computing Science, I had already been part of several projects spanning from Web & Mobile Software development, Networking, Data Collection & Analysis and Computer Vision for more than four years.

The Nature & scope of the projects I have worked on(Commercial & Academic), cuts across the divide ranging from humanitarian & philanthropy, Health, Government Institutions, Transport & Logistics with the biggest proportion being projects that have to do with informality & informal sector in Zimbabwe for example, spatiality & agglomeration economies of scale in Zimbabwe's informal manufacturing sector.
