Charles Rice
Data Scientist & Word Nerd

I upgraded ten years as a financial journalist, writer, and editor with code, statistics, and predictive modeling. Whereas I once turned information into words, I now turn words into information. I have intensive training and experience with Python, statistical analysis, and machine learning, and extensive experience clarifying complex ideas for technical and non-technical audiences.

Python: SciKit Learn, NLTK, Pandas, Word2Vec, StatsModels, Jupyter Notebook, Atom, Anaconda, Matplotlib
