PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Data Scientist

Confidential, Denver, CO

Responsibilities:

  • Involved in the entire data science project life cycle including data extraction, data cleansing, transform and prepare the data ahead of analysis and data visualization phase.
  • Used R to manipulate data, develop and validate quantitative models.
  • Cleansed the data by eliminating duplicate and inaccurate data in R and Python.
  • Identified the missing values, pattern recognition techniques were used to find the pattern for missing values and handled them with K-NN imputation.
  • Unstructured data was scaled and combined with structured data to apply statistical methods.
  • Dummy variables created for categorical variables.
  • Sorted attributes into categorical and numeral variables.
  • Data was visualized using different visualization (scatter plot, box plots, and histograms) techniques from ggplot2 package in R.
  • Tried and implemented multiple models to evaluate predictions and performance.
  • Machine learning algorithms like Random forest and logistic regression models were built on correlated data sets and emphasized on advanced algorithms like neural networks, SVM.
  • Data was segmented into training, testing and validation sets at 0.5-0.25-0.25 ratio.
  • Fine-tuned models to obtain more recall than accuracy. Trade-off between False Positives and False Negatives.
  • Evaluated models using Recall, Precision, Cross Validation and ROC.
