this is a picture of me

A bit about myself:

  • I’m currently a consultant at a leading strategy and innovation consulting firm in Boston
  • I’m transitioning to data science and engineering. I love wading through data and I want to combine my analytical skills, programming chops, and business acumen
  • I graduated cum laude from Yale University in 2016 where I double majored in political science and mechanical engineering
  • After graduation, I lived in Kyrgyzstan for one year, which honestly has been one of the most enjoyable and meaningful things I’ve done in my (so far, short) life
  • While in Kyrgyzstan, I was a part of the start-up team for the University of Central Asia, the first fully residential, liberal arts university in the region. It was an amazing institution and experience.

My interests:

  • data visualization and analytics
  • statistics, machine learning, natural language processing
  • technologies, entrepreneurship, and education for developing contexts

For fun, I like to:

  • solve the New York Times Crossword
  • watch and critique film
  • travel, write, make videos
  • read a lot

Building this blog:

This blog has been a work in progress (the first commit was 5 years ago!) and was created with Jekyll, a Ruby static site generator. I highly recommend it!

Finally, a disclaimer:

I’ve heard people say that social media serves as a reflection for our current (and often aspirational) conceptions of self. I think that writing and blogging (esp. about yourself) has a similar function. This blog is just a collection of random thoughts and updates on my life. I really like extended inside jokes (particularly those pertaining to The Consortium, so if anything doesn’t make sense you can just ask me about it.
