Leo C.E. Huberts (1991) holds MSc and BSc degrees in Econometrics and a BSc in Natural and Social Sciences from the University of Amsterdam (UvA). During his studies, he worked at the financial department of the Stichting CPNB, was a strategy consultant for the Kleine Consultant Amsterdam (doing pro bono strategy projects for small and medium-sized companies), served on various committees, and was board member of the Analytics Academy (running pro bono data science projects for cultural and social institutions). 

During his master, he was a manager for the Big Data Alliance and founded Delph, a data science consultancy and development firm with clients ranging from political parties to municipalities and construction companies. After two years with Delph, he decided to pursue a Ph.D. degree at the University of Amsterdam. His Ph.D. on statistical and predictive process monitoring finished in 2021, after which he became Assistant Professor in Business Analytics at the University of Amsterdam until joining UNSW in November 2022.
