Description of my final project


Using web scraping, our group acquired lyrics for 25k+ songs appearing on the Billboard Hot 100 from 1958 to Present. We investigated patterns in lyrics across decades using methods such as Topic Modeling, Sentiment Analysis, and Term Frequency, overlaying observations with historical and cultural events, identifying a major cultural shift beginning in the 90's. We then created a classification model to predict the decade of a song given its lyrics, resulting in a 191% improvement upon baseline.

Hire me because:

I am strategically minded, an authentic communicator, facilitator, and organizer of collaboration. I see data as a powerful tool to communicate patterns that allow for hope & growth in the future. I enjoy collaborating with others who want to impact growth through logical, informed action while operating in an environment that believes in the potential of others.
