Welcome to my website
Hi, I'm Sarah and I'm a data scientist. In the world of technology, I've chosen to make a change, using my computer science skills. I like leveraging machine learning to make people's lives better. I'm currently focused on recommendation systems, a topic that passionates me, because they are everywhere on the web! It's such a fun to dig deeper into how these recommendations are so personalised!  


I’m Sarah Mestiri. I like having a positive impact on people’s lives by building applications or so, using my programming skills, but also by participating in numerous extracurricular activities. I’m extremely curious when it comes to smart technologies and artificial intelligence (A.I) achievements like Eye Tracking or Recognition. I remember when I fell in love with NAO Robot when seeing how it interacts with a human. That’s why I’ve recently switched from software engineering to Data Science and Machine Learning. I’m learning everyday in my job as Data Scientist and I enjoy the challenges I face while working on one of my favorite ML applications: building a recommender system to improve Ads and make them less annoying and more personalized 😉

Otherwise, on my spare time, I enjoy traveling and of course photographing sceneries with my Canon 1200D!

One last thing that I forgot to mention! Reading articles about Tech, Leadership or Personal Development and also writing blog posts about what I learn is one of my favorite pass-times.
