Senior Product Analyst at Influur
I am a Data Scientist by trade, Astrophysicist by Degree, and Teacher by Heart.
Before becoming a Data Scientist, I realized that data is everywhere, taking over every aspect of my life. In my roles as an Undergraduate Research Assistant and a Data Analyst, I was exposed to working with large datasets, ranging from Youtube Analytics to Galaxy Cluster Pressure Profiles. Having the opportunity to work with data about a platform (YouTube) that I really love helped me love my work even more. I was able to carry this passion into MoneyLion, where I truly began to dive myself into the nitty gritty of Data Science, working with Database technologies like MongoDB and Redshift, developing efficient data warehouse ETL processes using Python and R, building predictive models for decision-making, building and maintaining R packages, building dashboards to track statistical significance of marketing campaigns, and manipulating data with a variety of tools like ElasticSearch, DataGrip, and more.
As a kid, immigrating to the US in 2005, I was very impressionable and excited about new things I learned. I spent a tremendous amount of time researching and watching videos about science and our universe. This passion for learning made me excited about explaining what I knew to others. As Neil deGrasse Tyson once explained, when I learned something new about science I felt like asking the person next to me, “Have you heard this!?”.
Now, I prepare to make my way into this new world of teaching Data Science. Whether it is teaching to my peers or friends, or fulfilling my dream of teaching an Online Course, I will continue to share the wonders of Data Science to all willing to listen. At the same time, I will keep diving deeper into this complex world of Data, learning as much as I can.
