Daniel C. Moura


I am Daniel and I love data and algorithms.

I have a PhD in Computer Engineering and a Master in Artificial Intelligence. I worked for several years at the University of Porto, where I lectured computer science subjects and researched pattern matching, computer vision and other AI-related topics. I was fortunate to work with École Polytechnique de Montréal, University College of London, the University of Gent, and Carnegie Mellon University. In 2015 I joined Veniam, where I helped driving and setting up the Data area (Science, Engineering and Analytics). Since 2022 I am Principal Data Scientist at Nexar.

I love to learn and to share what I learn. I also love to build new things and solve problems. That is why I have created SPyQL, an open source project for querying data with SQL powered by Python expressions.

I love being surrounded by nature, hiking, dancing, and spending time with my family and friends. I also love playing sports, from football/soccer to chess :-)
