Data Science Career Track
Summary

I take a liberal arts approach to data science, making insights accessible to every organizational level. I turn the theoretical into the practical,  illuminating the "why" and the "what's next." I speak incentives, dollars, and cents with the same authority as the technical approaches I evangelize.


Projects
The Baseball Futures Market
Winter 2018

  • Constructed a data set of over a million rows of play-by-play data from an online database, manipulated it using pandas and numPy, and connected it to historical odds
  • Created visualization using matplotlib and seaborn along with some preliminary exploratory data analysis and inferential statistics 
  • Predicted four different betting outcomes for each game with linear and logistic regression and tracked my account
  • Tested on a single season of games, retraining my model every year; when wagering $100-500 per bet, the account won around $350,000 over eight season

Computational Linguistics & Lyrics
Spring 2018

  • Used the Genius API to build a data set of lyrics for thirty-three albums from eleven artists to perform natural-language processing 
  • Performed regular expression operations to prepare data for analysis and created visualizations showing the distribution of common words
  • Built a pipeline to vectorize and prioritize words with a tf-idf transformer in preparation for classification using a support vector machine 
  • Ran 100 different random combinations of training and test data, correctly predicting the artist 79% of the time; clustered to explore cross-genre confusion
