Hi, I am Christoph, Group Lead Analytics for BILLA, with about 1,100 stores one of the largest grocery chains in Austria. My job is to increase our ROI from analytics initatives and help foster a data-driven culture. Before I joined BILLA, I was the Lead Data Scientist in the BI Competence Center at the Austrian Postal Service. I was responsible for designing the data science architecture, building the data science team and for coding up predictive models for logistics use cases. Prior to joining the Austrian Post, I worked as a financial consultant at KPMG.

I have a Master degree in Quantitative Finance and a Bachelor degree in Business. So I am neither scared by stuff like: $$\max \left(\frac{1}{2}\sigma^2 V”(x)+\mu V’(x)-rV(x), 1-V’(x) \right) = 0$$ nor by acronyms such as GDPR, IFRS and EBITDA:)

My interests include traveling (I did a 9-month-trip-around-the-world), climbing and playing board games. Recently I started teaching myself the piano (we will see how that goes:)
