Projects
Exploring Craigslist Musicians Communities

Created an interactive web app to explore Craigslist Musicians communities and the prevalence of algorithmically-generated topics in certain geographic areas. Scraped posts from the most active Craigslist Musicians sites in the U.S. and clustered posts via non-negative matrix factorization topic modeling.

The Starting Lineup

Trained gradient-boosted tree regressors to predict weekly fantasy football performances for players in the 2017 NFL season. Achieved a season-average, root mean squared error of 5.6 points, beating ESPN's predictions by 0.5 points.

Making Music Recommendations

Trained a binary tree classifier to predict whether a user will re-listen to a given song using transactional, user, and song-specific data provided by a Taiwanese streaming music service.
