Hi! I’m Scott. I made this webpage mostly to share my interest in data science and some visualizations that I make. I’m pretty interested in rigorous data analysis, as graduate school and How to lie with statistics taught me that it’s easy to make misleading claims from data. And we can use the same data to come to opposite conclusions.

I’m now a data scientist at Square. I work on the Risk team in the Cash App to counteract attempted fraud. I transitioned into the field through the Insight data science fellowship program. Previously, I was a graduate student in neuroscience at UC San Diego working in the Voytek lab studying brain rhythms. Specifically, I developed a new analysis framework to extract additional 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.
