Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I've always been passionate about data. The way data can mislead or present itself in a deceptive manner always has intrigued me. For example: In World War 2, the Royal Air Force suffered extensive losses to anti-aircraft fire and wanted to save their pilots' lives by reinforcing their fighters' armor. Their initial approach was to examine the planes that returned from missions and reinforce the areas that suffered the most amount of damage. While this is an obvious approach, it is fundamentally wrong, because if a plane returned safely with significant damage to a certain area, it is most likely not a dangerous area. The best area to place armor would be the areas in which the planes that returned do not have damage to them, because the planes that did suffer damage to those areas never made it back. This is a case in which not having a true random sample in their data caused them to make a rash decision, but thanks to the cleverness of mathematicians and statisticians at the time, saved lives. As I pursue my career in software development I've kept my love of statistics with me, creating projects that utilize statistics and accurate models. My passion for both programming and statistics made it clear for me that big data engineering and data science were perfect for me and I continue to work on projects that utilize large datasets and analytics. I'm a motivated third-year at San Jose State University studying Computer Science and currently looking for opportunities that allow me to apply my software engineering and statistical skills.
