Who Am I?
I am an undergraduate student pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Data Science with a minor in Mathematics at the University of California, San Diego. I love creating actionable insights from data and am always excited to learn something new.
Some of my Current Interests
I love tinkering with deep learning and neural networks and am learning about transformers and their applications.
I love processing and analyzing data of any sort I can get my hands on, in Pandas and SQL.
Computer Science Education:
I am currently tutoring and doing reasearch in computer science education because I find it fascinating to try to better how others learn computer and data science.
Trained a linear regression model that accurately predicts the NYPD's bias.
A choose your own adventure teaching SQL with an original schema and query problems.
Determined that the wage gap is positively correlated with education level using linear regression and a Mann-Whitney U Test.
Recommender system integrating iMBD API and Spotify API.
