|What areas do you specialize in? (ex: Creative writing, web development, finance, activism, etc.)|
Data Science, Biostatistics, activism
|Talk about a time where you organized/built/created something.|
Several years ago I created a website to host information that my students can access. Normally, this would be provided through Canvas but as a Teaching Assistant for a large course, the site design is not optimized for me to reach my students. It's been a fun process of building and refining my website and has reduced my teaching workload.
|What is something you've learned related to your specializations, and what are your thoughts on it?|
Specialization: Data Science, Skill: R software
|What are your passions, and how do you engage with them?|
My main passion is ornithology, which I contribute to via my research and public engagement. Daily, I go bird watching and contribute citizen science data based on my sightings, which informs science about changes in species demographics and phenology. I also share facts about local species with my students, who haven't been exposed to bird watching before, making it more accessible to them and help them develop and appreciation for local biodiversity.
|Have you applied to Startup Shell before?||No|
|Why do you want to join Startup Shell?|
My primary goal is to interact with other people on campus outside of my department where I can be more creative and co-work. My secondary goal is to develop my portfolio. By collaborating with others, I hope to develop new skills outside my field that will make me more marketable as a Data Scientist.
