GRADUATE AND DATA SCIENTIST– BRADLEY UNIVERSITY, PEORIA IL - Dr.V.Uskov – September 2016
Contributed to the research under Smart Education systems, an entrepreneurial project by generating research materials under various software’s and information needed for information systems
Researching includes topics on Learning Analytics, Website Analytics, Social Media Conversation and their benefits and developed a software tool for the university, which predicts the students’ performance based on his status, and alerts if performance is critical, implemented using predictive modelling.
Developed a prototype for student, professor and admin module using Bootstrap, CSS, jQuery with industry trends etc.
Used interactive data visualizations (graphs etc) to communicate the information to the respective module (student, admin, or professor), Reduced hard labor with this project. Increased student’s performance which is self-driven, reporting every status change to the professor. Used my communication skills to present this prototype in front of researchers in an expo and won the third place for BU EXPO 2017.
GRADUATE ASSISTANT – BRADLEY UNIVERSITY, PEORIA IL – Dr.Naomi Stover - May 2017
Provided maintenance to websites and maintained servers and databases on campus which deals with genes and chromosomes. The site contains projects and DNA structure to be visualized on a certain pattern.
Worked on projects on Perl, PHP and LINUX gaining familiarity with scripting languages where the work is based on MVC architecture. visualization of charts on GBrowse, where a gene is broken down to observe the DNA structure.
DATABASE DESIGN – BORING LOGS
Designed a Database and data modelling using ER- studio and PHP for the Civil Department to maintain records of Boring Logs used in different locations across the country and filtered by Projects and Routes.
Database development of a logical and physical module using ER-studio and created a data dictionary and created the star schema and the Chen notation to get a clear idea of the database design and maintained the database and the data architecture.
Hands on Data Warehousing, SQL and data management providing good data quality
HEART DISEASE DATASET ANALYSIS – DATA ANALYST/DATA MINING
Downloaded the heart disease dataset or few data sources from the UCI website and started doing the data analysis and ETL to find out the patterns in the dataset using Weka, using predictive modeling, Optimized data with analytical skills and data mapping to get a clean integrated data
Big data involving thousands of records, optimizing big data and data collection, analyzing data.
performed analysis and find out the missing attributes from the dataset using various algorithms such as J48, Random Forest, Bayesian and clustering techniques such as Simple-k means algorithm and found out the age >= 66 are more prone to heart diseases.
BETTY FRIEDAN – USING NEO4J
Started by collecting data about her from social media, her yearbooks, online advertising and designing a database by using the dimension table to get a relationship of all the tables associated to her, and feeding them onto csv files with all the clubs and its member from 1935- 1938
Imported them on neo 4j a graph database which would depict the students as nodes and the relationship as edges with attributes of the club name and the year associated to it.
The graph would center Betty Friedan as a node and all students that she interacted with, a better quality
BUSINESS MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE SYSTEMS – SOFTWARE PROJECT MANAGEMENT – Project Planning
