Technologist, also human.
Teaching
As a proponent of code literacy and interdisciplinary research, I spend Friday mornings teaching workshops on Python, ArcGIS & QGIS at the Digital Scholarship Center (DiSC) within George Mason University. These workshops assume little to no knowledge of programming or CS concepts. I aim to demonstrate how simple programming concepts can help doctoral students, faculty & undergrads take the first step towards conducting reproducible research efficiently through the use of open source data analysis tools. These workshops are attended by faculty & students from departments like Data Analytics, Political Science, Nursing, Geospatial Science to name a few.

Project Presentations
I like working on data science projects. I presented the following for my courses in Data Mining at George Mason University.

Twitter is my favorite social network and at any point, you can get me to talk (or read a paper) about it! I once talked about influence detection on Twitter to my class.
