NLP Models

Developed a sentiment analysis classifier using Naïve Bayes to improve AUC by 40% over the baseline model. The model would allow companies to quickly find and address negative feedback to improve customer experience and customer retention.

Created a highly scalable RNN sentiment classifier using Keras that increased F1 score by 28% over the baseline model and significantly outperformed all traditional machine learning models. MovieLens Recommender System

Created a collaborative filtering recommendation engine using a FunkSVD algorithm that improved recommendation RMSE by 23.5%. This could potentially lead to large increases in customer satisfaction or an increase in sales depending on the use case.

Used statistics to create model basis and included hyperparameter optimization and regularization.

Salary Prediction Model

Created an end to end machine learning pipeline including an ETL pipeline, feature engineering, multiple machine learning models, and hyperparameter optimization that resulted in a 47.5% decrease in model error compared to the baseline model.

Employed Object Oriented Programming and other best coding practices for readable, reusable, and professional code.

Saved results to a SQL database for ease of access. 2015–Present

Classroom Instructor A-List Education

Designed and taught SAT classes by investing in each individual student and providing personalized feedback and goals.

Continuously improved my instruction and student results by incorporating both mentor and student feedback.
