Thang Nguyen

Thang graduated from Monash University. His major is in Data Science, but he also has a strong foundation in App Development. His interests include data analytics, machine learning, data structures and deep learning. Tableau and Alteryx are his main tools alongside Python, SQL and R.

Being a part of The Data School Down Under have enabled him to explore more in-depth about the World of Data which has been his main objective from the starting point. One of Thang’s favourite things in the whole universe is beautiful, simple yet elegant visualisations. And that is the fundamental design principle for all his dashboards. Also, Thang is a mechanical keyboards enthusiast and a good cook. “Good food makes the world a better place”, he said.
