I’m Scott. I use this webpage mostly to share my thoughts and interests, mostly involving data science. I’m pretty interested in rigorous data analysis, as graduate school and How to lie with statistics taught me that it’s too easy to make misleading claims from data and use the same data to justify opposite conclusions.

I’m now a data scientist working in fraud prevention. I transitioned into this through the Insight data science fellowship program and previously was a graduate student in neuroscience at UC San Diego derping around in the Voytek lab studying brain waves. Specifically, I developed a new analysis framework to extract additional information from neural signals by parametrizing the waveform shapes, as represented best in this review paper and this methods paper.
