Our Team


Daniel Tamming


Data Scientist, GEMINI

My role with the GEMINI team:

I am a Data Scientist on the GEMINI data team. I work on visualization and modelling, with a special focus on projects that have a machine learning component.


My past experience and accomplishments:

My master’s thesis project focused on applying data augmentation, a method of improving machine learning systems by generating synthetic training examples, to natural language processing tasks. I spent the last summer of my undergraduate degree as a controls developer, assembling robots and building their control systems. I worked as a teaching assistant or tutor during each of the final five years of my schooling.

My educational background:

I received a Bachelor’s degree in Applied Math and Computer Engineering at Queen’s University, followed by a Master’s degree in Computer Science from the University of Waterloo.


I feel most inspired when:

Opening up my laptop with a coffee within arm’s reach.

A few of my favourite things are:

  • Road biking

  • The Toronto Maple Leafs 

  • The Settlers of Catan
