College of Computer & Information Science, Northeastern University, Boston, MA January 2018 - Present Machine Learning Teaching Assistant

• Tutor for graduate level course - Supervised Machine Learning. Helped graduate students understand concepts about practical algorithms and supervised machine learning theory including topics but not limited to generative/discriminative learning, parametric/non-parametric learning, deep neural networks, support vector machines, decision trees, forests, etc. ( Level Education, Northeastern University, Boston, MA September 2016 - May 2017/ January 2018 - Present Level Core Analytics Teaching Assistant

• Coached over 100+ industry professionals across 4 different cities, to learn and apply concepts of Probability & Statistics, Business Intelligence, Data Mining, Data Visualization and Machine Learning by harnessing the power of analytical tools like MySQL, R, Tableau and Orange to industry sponsored capstone projects.

Level Education, Northeastern University, Boston, MA September 2017 - December 2017 Data Science Instructional Designer Co-op

• Developed course material, labs, recitation material and instructor guides for introductory and intermediate data analytics courses spanning topics from Probability & Statistics, Database Designing & Modeling, Data Mining, Data Visualization and Machine Learning. Charles River Laboratories, Wilmington, MA May 2017 - August 2017 Data Scientist Co-op, Advance Analytics Team

• Extensively worked on optimization of Long Short-Term Memory Networks(LSTMs), a type of Recurrent Neural Networks for Sales Quantity Prediction to anticipate demand for production. Testing reliability of other time series methods for long term forecasting.

• Designed a system to train a hundred Time Series models using LSTMs and performed a comparative analysis between the LSTMs and other time series models like ARIMA, Holts-Winter, Exponential Smoothing, etc. for short term forecasting. PROJECTS

Prediction of stock prices and change in its movement using LSTMs -RNN July 2017

• Designed and Optimized a Long Short-Term Memory Network (Recurrent Neural Network) for predicting stock price and the change in its movement for Charles River Labs (CRL) listed at NYSE. Detection of Fake News Posts on Facebook March 2017 - April 2017

• This project involved verifying the authenticity of news posts on Facebook. The news post and user comments were vectorized into a 300-dimensional vector space using Mikolov's skip gram model and combined in varied proportions. These vectors along with other user reactions were passed as features to various ML classifiers (used in high dimensional feature setting like Nearest Shrunken centroid) for predicting the class labels.
