Data Scientist

About me

My passion is using data to understand how people behave and why. I am actively seeking data science roles.

In my Psychology PhD, I studied the fact that people share a historic amount of information about themselves online. I showed that these everyday social media posts reveal a lot about who you are as a person, specifically that they can predict your real-world decisions and mental health. I did this by using machine learning and natural language processing on over 100 million social media posts.

Now, I am passionate about applying this technical toolbox to data science roles. I recently completed an Insight Data Science Fellowship in New York City.
