Our course does not require any previous Data Science experience.

Now, while this is a beginner course,  it does not mean that it is an easy course. For example in the Data Science methodology section, many different concepts are introduced. But please keep in mind that a. you will get concrete examples of what each concept means when it is brought up. b. most importantly, you are not meant to understand all the concepts fully. 

Beyond this, you will get to build a simple chatbot. This hands-on activity will illustrate in a more interactive way how machine learning works and how you can provide a machine learning service such as this in your future career.

All Things Data.

I have a passion for anything data, whether it is applying statistical methods to data more generally, or utilizing a data-driven approach in the Healthcare or Finance/Banking industries.

I studied Psychology for 6-years, including 2 years of Graduate school, where I was training to be a Child/School Psychologist. I had an opportunity to experience a blend of course work and clinical work but also recognize some of the problems facing the mental health system and graduate school system. 

While I did ultimately decide to voluntarily leave the Grad program, it is via academics that I fell in love with statistics and statistical software like SPSS/SAS.

It was my Graduate school experience that solidified my interest in teaching, and where I received a lot of great feedback on my teaching and teaching style.
