Aspiring Data Scientist

About Me

I'm a graduate of the University of California Berkeley, where I majored in Molecular and Cellular Biology. I am based in San Francisco, California.

Thinking back to the biology and chemistry experiments I did in college made me realize that I didn't care about the 'actual experiment'...I just wanted to get the data because that's when the fun began! I am a Biologist turned Data Enthusiast.

I am self-teaching to become a Data Scientist. Data Science is the "integration of human knowledge and computer-based techniques to achieve what neither could achieve alone"- Data Science for Business. This field combines: programming, machine learning, statistics, mathematics, business, and communication skills. There is so much to understand about this interdisciplinary field and I am beyond excited to keep learning.

Check out my Blog and Portfolio to see what I have accomplished. If you have any tips or book recommendations for me, I would love to hear them!
