About Me

In my 15+ years of experience in quantitative data analysis, I have utilized statistical analysis in data-driven decision-making, collaborating in projects ranging from predictive text analytics to isolating neural impulse signals. My affinity for learning and receiving feedback is demonstrated in my 5+ years of continued education in advanced analytics with Python, R, SQL, MongoDB, Tableau among others, while also establishing a foundation in data science with machine learning, producing tidy data, and managing both structured and unstructured databases. As a graduate of the Data Science & Visualization Boot Camp at UC San Diego as well as the Johns Hopkins University Data Science Specialization with a Master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from Georgia Tech and Emory University, I am always seeking to venture into the known and unknown to reveal the stories from the minutiae details in a sea of data. As a scientist and public speaker, I am always seeking to tell these stories to technical and non-technical audiences alike.

Ideal Workplace Values

I am looking for a workplace that puts its employees first, supports equal pay, demonstrates transparency, and promotes a good work-life balance.

Skills & Strengths

Neuroexceptional Talents

- I am a scientist, musician, engineer, artist, and programmer simultaneously. I draw from aspects of all these fields, utilizing both my left and right brain when I am approaching a new task. - I am always looking for patterns, anomalies, and the meaning behind such. - I am very good at communicating with, teaching, and mentoring others who are neurodivergent and require explanations in a different way from the typical delivery (in addition to communicating, teaching, and mentoring neurotypical people). - Even when tackling small problems, I am always considering everything as part of a larger system and how each component affects the others, often going about a project with a different perspective than others. - When I conceptualize a personal project, I lay out a framework knowing that as it progresses, I will come up with better ideas throughout execution that will ultimately enhance the project while remaining within the scope of the original plans: expecting it to be as aesthetically attractive as it is technically sound - I have been studying 3 foreign languages and talking to people around the world in different cultures, giving me additional perspectives of people from nearly every time zone, and managing to find times to chat or talk without interfering with work or sleep. - When I seek to learn and understand something, it is not a surface understanding. I am not an information memorizer, I am a deep learner; I want to know everything about the technology I am using and immerse myself into its use until I can teach it
