My Capstone Project: Smart Moves: Guiding Your Way Home

We created an interactive dashboard to provide a meaningful guide for prospective movers and their families. Using data from The Economic Policy Institute, The Census Bureau, and the FBI, we acquired about 230 Metropolitan Statistical Areas. By performing unsupervised machine learning techniques, we gave families the choice of selecting what’s most important to them and better inform their decision. My individual contributions to the project were the project proposal, completing part of both the preparation and exploration stages, creating and implementing the Kanban for project timeline, and creating the interactive dashboard in Tableau.

“With technology, I am most passionate about transforming data to inform and empower the world one code cell at a time.
