Hire Me Because

In a world full of metrics I want to find those that are meaningful for driving results. With data story telling and visualization I can communicate the insights revealed by the data to any audience.

My Capstone Project: A Tale of Two Cities

The CDC’s social vulnerability index (SVI) is a scale that predicts the vulnerability of a population in the event of an emergency or natural disaster. COVID is the first global pandemic since the development of this measure. We evaluated the association between the SVI score and COVID case count in San Antonio and Dallas, Texas. Features from the SVI were incorporated into a predictive model which indicates that socioeconomic indicators are a better guide to resource allocation in a pandemic than SVI score.

“With technology, I am most passionate about finding and delivering hidden insights within the data.
