About me

Johan Åhlén photoMy name is Johan Åhlén and I’m a Data Scientist, Musician and IT-entrepreneur. I’ve around 20 years of experience from the IT business and have started a couple of companies.

Data Scientist

Being a Data Scientist it is my speciality to explore databases and make the information available and more easily understandable so that people can make well-informed decisions. The most thrilling about being Data Scientist is that I work within a diversity of knowledge areas such as mathematics, data modelling, business management, economics, social sciences, communications and humanities. My education is a master’s degree in Engineering Physics, but I’ve also spent a year at the Academy of music and arts in Göteborg and various other academic courses. However, I consider real life the best school.

I play classical piano. Also I was probably the youngest ever to graduate as a church organist in Sweden. My latest recordings are available on Spotify. Read more about my music here.
