About Nicholas

I'm Nick, a PhD from Duke with a focus on signals processing and machine learning. I completed my PhD during the summer of 2017 after working on a variety of research projects, including image processing based brain cancer analytics, landmine detection, seizure prediction, and energy analysis; prior to my PhD, I graduated with a 3.97 GPA from University of Pittsburgh's electrical engineering program. My everyday work involves extensive mathematical and statistical analyses, which I implement primarily in MATLAB.

Math has been a passion of mine since my grandfather started teaching me basics as a 3 year old. In middle school and high school, I competed in and won many mathematics competitions in middle and high school. I started tutoring in high school and taught my local MathCounts branch, which resulted in one of my students winning the Johnstown regional competition and progressing to the Pennsylvania's state competition.

I look forward to working with you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Business

Management consulting focus. I am the former President and current Vice President of the Duke Advanced Professional Degree Consulting Club, an incoming Consultant (MBA level) at Boston Consulting Group in Atlanta, and an attendee at McKinsey Insight 2016. I have extensive experience practicing business cases with consultants from BCG, McKinsey, Trinity Partners, etc. and would like to offer my services for helping students prepare for case and fit interviews at major consulting firms.

Linear Algebra

I obtained an A in my undergraduate linear algebra course. I have worked extensively with linear algebra in my research and classes. Through these experiences, I have gained a firm understanding of linear algebra concepts and am comfortable with matrix operations.

MATLAB

I code in MATLAB on an almost daily basis for my PhD research at Duke and have worked with a number of students with various problems and skill levels. I have logged ~3000 hrs over the last four years in MATLAB and am experienced in functional and object oriented coding.
