Roberto Garvia

I am a growth-oriented and motivated professional specialized in quantitative and statistical analysis. I hold a PhD in Sociology (Universitat Pompeu Fabra) and a Master in Big Data & Data Science (AFI Escuela de Finanzas).

 My academic research examines occupational patterns in the labor market. I have thoroughly studied occupational mobility, individual careers, and workplace inequalities. I am also interested in organizational characteristics and occupational well-being. My current research focuses on the study of social networks, machine learning modelling, and natural language processing. Recently, I have been using social media to conduct an experimental investigation into talent retention.
