Hire Me Because

I bring a special amount of passion to data science. I love using data science to help people, so much so, that it feels more like I’m playing than working.

My Capstone Project: Score Clinical Patient Notes

The motivation for this project came from a desire to have an impact on the healthcare industry. The clinical skills portion of the United States Medical Licensing Examination requires students to write a patient note after interacting with actors portraying specific clinical cases. Doctors would then score the patient notes based off of the important topics, using a rubric. However, scoring these exams requires time, and human and financial resources. The goal of this project is to use NLP to help automate this scoring process. My team performed exploratory data analysis on the patient notes, executed NLP techniques to locate required portions of patient notes to be graded by doctors, and incorporated machine learning and deep learning to predict case number and extract text.

“With technology, I am most passionate about using data to help people lead better, healthier lives.
