Ideal Workplace Values

I can thrive in a company that allows me to work remotely and aims to make a positive impact on people's lives. Doing data science work in an environment where I can be myself and help people on top of that is my dream workplace.


Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

I initially went to college as a neuroscience major with a minor in mathematics. During my coursework, I started leaning toward more computational classes that required a coding background, and was later on told by instructors that I was a natural programmer. From there, I fell in love with creating and designing algorithms and programs to find patterns within data.

Experience

Check out my work

Worked for from Jun 2021 to Jun 2021

Teaching Assistant, Tutor - New York University Tandon School of Engineering (current school)

I taught undergraduates how to solve a wide array of math problems, including both calculus 2 coursework and coursework for differential equations. I usually would let students try and solve it on their own, and then solve it if people struggled while explaining clearly my thinking and steps. Sometimes I would draw pictures and give situations where solving this type of problem would be usual.
