I hope to learn more about the field I plan to focus on in school. Right now, I am interested in data from Chinese social media, particularly WeChat and WeiBo. I look forward to learning new and different ways of mining useful data for analysis from these two mediums, as well as many others.
I am a bit of a novice when it comes to professional data science projects, but I spend a lot of time parsing and making sense of the data I analyze in my spare time.
Mainly Python and its assorted packages.
I am a Chemistry graduate from UT, Knoxville. After graduation I lived in China, where I worked as a university teacher for 4 years. I am a self-taught programmer, but I will be attending graduate school this Fall and intend on studying data science.
