Hire Me Because

I can convey difficult concepts to people at every level, I’m an avid learner who appreciates and adapts to adverse situations, and I enjoy working with others towards a goal.

My Capstone Project: Stroke Prediction

The CDC cited in 2018, that one in every 6 deaths from cardiovascular disease was due to stroke. This means that in the United States, every 40 seconds, someone has a stroke. This shocking statistic was the drive for our team. We found drivers of stroke to include advanced age; hyperglycemia; hypertension; heart disease; marriage under 55 years old. We built a classification model based on these drivers. Our best model’s performance (Naive-Bayes) had a Recall of 83% and ROC AUC of 85%. This model was then used to produce a stroke-risk calculator that can be found in our GitHub.

“With technology, I am most passionate about supplying critical and meaningful insights through data storytelling and visualization.
