Hire Me Because

I am willing to try new things (like durian and fermented egg) and like to move a team forward to accomplish the task at hand in a timely manner.

My Capstone Project: Temperature Predictions

Employed regression modeling to predict average temperature for a 14-day period. Utilized the data for the 2023 Women in Data Science datathon, explore data for indicators of temperature, and predicted temperature using a polynomial regression model. Used python, pandas, matplotlib, seaborn, and scikit-learn to prepare, explore and model our data.

“With technology, I am most passionate about getting to know the data, seeing what it’s trying to tell me, and sharing with others what I found.
