I’m an aspiring data scientist and current fellow at Insight Data Science. You can see a list of my data-related projects here ranging from burritos to text mining to police misconduct (CV, resume). While my amateur approach to data science has been fun, I am hoping to have a greater impact on the world by joining the tech industry. Or at the very least, I’ll get to learn cool new things.
I recently finished a PhD in neuroscience at UC San Diego while working in the Voytek lab studying brain rhythms. Specifically, I developed a new analysis framework to extract novel information from neural signals by parametrizing the waveform shapes of the brain rhythms. You can learn more about our motivations in this review paper and the techniques in this methods paper.
