Learning about machine learning and data science

Hi, I'm Nick

I am a data science enthusiast, a life-long learner, and a student of life. Currently I am a Systems Biology PhD candidate at Columbia University in New York City. I am a native of Buffalo, New York and thus an expert in braving the cold

Outside of doing research in my lab, I really enjoy being involved in AI-related and programming groups in NYC -- they’re really fun!

I’m also interested in rehabilitative science. Being disabled myself, I learn a lot about how the body re-learns movement patterns through occupational therapy and pilates.

Book(s) I'm Reading

Deep Learning

by Goodfellow et al.
