Needs a location
Despite being around for years, there is a myth around geospatial data analysis that propagates the notion for advanced coding skills with elements of data analysis, cartography, web development and database management, among others. This talk is focused on giving the audience an introduction to
geospatial data handling and sparking an interest towards getting their hands dirty with quick access to geotagged data.
The talk includes a project demo of the spatial analysis of the tweets that are relevant to the #MeToo movement which began in 2017. Where did it begin? How did it spread? All this and more, will be answered in the talk !
I’m a 2nd year graduate student pursuing my masters in data science and applied statistics at University of Washington Seattle. Prior to pursuing my Masters I worked for a while at American Express Big Data Labs as a Machine Learning Engineer and hold a bachelors degree in computer science and engineering. In March 2018, I was involved in hosting Seattle’s first ever all female conference, Women In Data Science. I am passionate about data analysis that affects policy and healthcare and hope to work in the field some day. For now, I will soon be joining Microsoft as a data scientist in 2019.
