My Journey: Education, Skills and Experiences

"I believe that data has a radically transformative power"

Data Analyst February 2022 – Present

ShipShape(A joint Project between USAID x Arizona State University) Tempe, Arizona, United States

A joint project between US Agency for International Development and ASU to test if a simple mobile app (ShipShape) which functions as an educational tool would improve supply chain performance in the pharmaceutical sector in developing countries (Ghana). Analysed the historical data collected throughout the four-year durations of this project from the mobile app development team, conducted hypothesis testing to confirm the projects findings. This has resulted in USAID stakeholders deciding to continue this project across different developing countries.

How Exactly do I add value here:

  • Clean the Data -- Get it ready for Analysis

  • View the Data Statistically

  • Create a Inventory Model to test inventory in hand improvement before and after the project was launched

  • Statistical testing for Publication(difference on differences test, trend analysis)

APL Logistics Tempe, Arizona, United States

Capstone Project

Analysed large volumes of shipment data to build a Machine Learning model to improve predictive accuracy of shipments moving from origin port to destination port; this would largely improve supply chain visibility for APL Logistics’ clients at each node of the shipment journey. Used AWS cloud server for Database with MySQL, used python for Data Cleaning, EDA and ML Modelling, and PowerBI + Tableau for visualization + Google Data Studio.

How Exactly do I add value here:

It is a project where I led a team of 5 graduate analysts, some of my strengths in this project are taking initiatives, leadership, as well as bringing new insights and tech stack to the team when the project suffers from a road block.

Roadblock Example:

Early on in this project one of the major roadblock we had was the lack of SQL server access from client as well as the University side. Because of the large size of the CSV files MS Sql Server Management studio (Free Version) was not able to handle the files and repeatedly suffered Out of Memory Exception error.

How did I resolve this issue:

  • Migrated the large CSV files (over 15gb) into Google Cloud Storage created a Bucket on Google Cloud Storage.

  • Used Google Big Query to convert the Stored CSV files into Tables

  • SQL to query required data

Research Data Scientist September 2021 – Present

Actionable Analytics Lab Tempe, Arizona, United States

Analyzed cryptocurrency adoption trends across US counties from year 2013 – 2021 at Actionable Analytics Lab - WP Carey Research(

To support the research, I gathered data to support this research by using web scraping tools in Python (BeautifulSoup/Selenium), followed by extensive Data Cleaning in Alteryx with Python Scripts.

Performed EDA to identify patterns in the crypto currency adoption to the US County health measures. On running regression on the final dataset, we identified coefficients which affects each US counties adoption rate(Lasso Regression).

This finding has helped open further channels in the cryptocurrency research at the Actionable Analytics Lab. The current role I'm working on is to compare historical prediction accuracy of cryptocurrency by humans vs by Machines using simple Machine Learning algorithms.

I have included the details of this project in the Project section, do check it out.

How Exactly do I add value here:

  • Webscraping for Data Gathering

  • Clean the Data -- Get it ready for Analysis

  • Statistical inferences from the gathered/Cleaned dataset
