Hi! I live in Portland, Oregon and work as a data scientist at DiscoverOrg.
I enjoy using data science techniques to pursue fascinating but as-yet unexplored questions, such as, are country artists who sing about trucks more likely to also sing about beer? Or, are male Sharks more likely to make deals with men than women? I’ve enjoyed a fair bit of success on the Data Is Beautiful subreddit while pursuing answers to questions like these. I also maintain an active GitHub profile, where I’ve enjoyed collaborating with various contributors on a number of my personal projects.
I earned a masters degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Iowa in May 2018, where I helped develop automated diagnostics for diseases of the retina. Before heading to grad school, I served as a research assistant in the Human Spinal Cord Research Lab in Iowa’s Department of Neurosurgery. I previously graduated from Goshen College, where I completed a B.A. in physics with a minor in English, and remained actively involved in music.
