Thorben Jensen

Data Scientist and PhD in Simulation Modeling


I love data. This is why I am a Data Scientist at Informationsfabrik GmbH.
And just before that, I was a Data Science Consultant at EY (Ernst & Young).

I have previously graduated from the PhD program at Delft University of Technology.
My thesis was on agent-based simulation, trend forecasting and data analytics.

Before my PhD, I studied Applied System Science and Environmental Systems
and Resource Management at Osnabrueck University with stays at the
Universities of Granada and Angers and the University Centre in Svalbard.
