Data Scientist Intern, Isazi Consulting, South Africa, Remote.

{ Predicted tuberculosis from chest X-rays using deep learning convolutional neural network (CNN) built from scratch with 84% accuracy and transfer learning with 88% accuracy in Pytorch.

{ Detected 14 advanced lung diseases using pre-trained CNN model with over 100,000 chest X-rays released by NIH.

2/16 – 7/16 Data Analyst, American Institute for Research, San Mateo, California.

{ Conducted ad hoc data analysis in SAS and R to help educational researchers and policy makers deepen understanding of US PK-12 education status, including gender gap, education inequality.

{ Developed and executed data processing plans; automated data review, reporting, and documentation generating processes to assist Department of Education in their annual data products release. 11/10 – 2/16 Statistical Analyst, MacroSys LLC, Washington DC.

{ Measured key metrics to monitor United States PK-12 student academic performance, contextual behavior, school and teacher characteristics using NAEP complex multi-stage survey data.

{ Built analytical tool in R enabling researcher with less programming experience to analyze NAEP data more efficiently; including guiding junior staff.

{ Fitted multiple linear regression with fixed and random effect and factor analysis to predict difficulty of Grade 4 and 8 reading items with Coh-Metrics factors, improving NAEP reading assessment effectiveness.

{ Validated NAEP math and history assessment framework by implementing stratifed bootstrap re-sampling method, creating 10,000 hypothetical assessment samples to determine Mathematics framework content coverage variability; validated results with the most recent 5 assessments. 1/10 – 9/10 Research Data Analyst Intern, Academy for Educational Development, Washington DC.

{ Extracted education indicators from household surveys to gain insight of local school district education quality using STATA, SPSS, and SQL.
