I am a data scientist with experience solving classification and demand-forecasting problems with statistics, machine learning, and deep learning. I have strong interests in artificial intelligence and programming, having completed a Master of Science in Analytics at the University of Chicago. I am currently studying advanced computer science topics in C++ at University of Washington Bothell. In my free time, I enjoy running, photography, and reading. I have finished two Chicago marathons and three half marathons.
