Is Marketing Intrinsically Causal?

After spending 5 years talking to mathematicians, Juan decided to look for new opportunities that would offer him more immediate impact on the world.

Little did he know that this journey will lead him to become a Senior Data Scientist at Wolt - one of the global food delivery leaders with operations in 25 countries.

In this episode we discuss Juan's journey towards data science, how causality was close to his heart from the very beginning and why starting simple is a good thing.

Juan shares how his background in physics and advanced geometry helps him tackle causal problems he faces daily in his work in the fields of marketing and pricing.

"It's fundamental for decision-making" - he says when asked about the future of causal modeling and causal AI.

We discuss the consequences of ignoring the causal structure in marketing problems.

Finally, Juan shares how inaccurate world models contributed to a distaste for wearing gloves by someone dear to him.
