Data Science Intern
Curtly is currently doing his MSc Data Science thesis, entitled Reinforcement learning for telescope optimisation, at UCT.
He made the move from his undergrad Physics and Astrophysics background to pursue the advancing field of data science and machine learning in hopes of a new and exciting field. The skills he has learnt from his physics background have helped him to solve mathematical problems that can arise in Machine Learning and Deep Learning.
Outside of data science, Curtly's interests lie within PC and IT hardware. He enjoys building and restoring computers, and if it wasn't for programming, he would probably have been an IT technician, or worse - an Astrophysicist.
