Data Science Subject matter expert and Physics PhD from Emory University. I've published numerous articles in top publications like "Towards Data Science," with 3000+ monthly views (https://skanda-vivek.medium.com/) using real-world data sets such as social media, road traffic, and airline delays. Here are some recent popular articles:

Top 1-3% selected among thousands of applicants for the rigorous Data Incubator fellowship program. Highlights include:

1) Developed random forest machine learning model to predict the impacts of collisions on Manhattan traffic using 1.4 million collisions and 23 million speeds from NYC Open Data API SQL database

2) Competitively selected to present a live demo of the project at Pitch Night: https://nbviewer.jupyter.org/github/skandavivek/Manhattan-predicting-fragility/blob/master/Visualization.ipynb

3) Web scraping of New York socialite blog to extract, parse, and filter over 120,000 photo captions and model social connections among 100,000 people using graph and page rank algorithms

4)Developed deep and convolutional neural networks in Tensorflow and Keras to classify images from the CIFAR-10 dataset.

5) Analyzed more than 100 GB of stack exchange posts data, and used NLP methods such as Word2Vec in Spark as well as Spark ML to predict if questions have the 10 most common tags

Data Science Expert

Skanda is knowledgeable and patient. I will def schedule another session with him soon. He helped me better understand Decision Trees in Python. Skanda is also keen on how data should be arranged and sorted.

Patient and Helpful tutor for Data Science

Skanda was pleasant and enthusiastic at teaching me data science. I am learning more and more from him with each session. I look forward to working with him and learning more from him throughout my data science course!
