My name is Jerome Urbain. I’m the Head of Products at GeoPostcodes. I have developed expertise in analyzing and modeling various data sources (acoustic, telecom, health, postal data), as well as leading data projects.
I am supervising the development of all products at GeoPostcodes, leveraging my geographical data processing expertise to create top-notch worldwide postal datasets.
I hold a Master in Electrical Engineering, with a concentration in Telecommunications and Biomedical engineering, and a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Mons, Belgium. Before joining GeoPostcodes, I had been a data scientist at RIAKTR and Technical Lead at Dalberg Data Insights.
I have successfully delivered data projects in multiple African countries (Uganda, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Guinea, …), crunching data sources (Telecom Operators and Mobile Money data, disease indicators, tourist information, demographic information, satellite imagery, …) for different use cases such as improving mobility, preventing disease outbreaks, promoting tourism, monitoring crops, predicting gender or supporting Mobile Money adoption.
