Welcome! I am a development economics researcher and aspiring data scientist currently working for the World Bank and Dartmouth College, based in Madison Wisconsin. I work with very large datasets and an array of tools and techniques to extract meaning from messy and complex data.
Some of my technical aptitudes include strong proficiency in Python, Stata, Matlab, and R; strong experience in statistical programming and causal inference; experience with classification and regression algorithms including RF, SVM, and a variety of neural network architectures; GIS and geospatial techniques; and visualization both in statistical languages and front-end web apps including the use of D3.js. For a more comprehensive representation of my skills, please see my CV or my Github.
I am inspired by: justice, causality, machine learning, human learning, altruism, relationships (human and otherwise), kindness, and wonder. I'm interested in finding ways to leave the world better than we found it, as I believe most people are.
