Data Science LA


August 14, 2014

I’m now involved in the recently-launched blog. While you’ll probably be drawn to the site for the useR! conference session videos, interviews with data scientists, and meetup announcements, there’s going to be much more!


I’ve posted Data Science Goes to College with DataFest, yet another summary of the yearly DataFest we hold at UCLA and that’s going national.

Then, I wrote Statistics Grad School– What is it Really Like? describing some of the experience of getting a PhD in statistics at UCLA.

Finally, I’ll be giving a talk at this month’s DataVis LA meetup, Eyeo Festival Highlights on August 26th. Come by Cornerstone OnDemand to hear me talk about the things that inspired me the most from the eyeo festival.

If you want to keep up with, you can follow along via twitter, youtube, add us to your favorite rss reader, or just drop by the site. I’m excited to be a part of it!
