Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hi! My name is Shaun, I really love math and data science. I feel like data science is a relatively new field that has a lot of opportunities and is not too difficult to learn about. I am excited to be teaching some really essential concepts of data science this year and hope that it can inspire students to go deeper into the field!

M1170: Intro to Data Science in Splash Fall 2023 (Nov. 18, 2023)
In this course we will cover key concepts of data science including, EDA (exploratory data analysis), data visualization, modeling with least squares, feature engineering, and logistic regression. If you want to follow along with the code, I plan to put everything up on github. If you aren't as comfortable with using jupyter notebooks, you can still follow along as a lot of what we will be doing is explaining concepts through code rather than just focusing on the code.

M1085: Concepts of Infinity in Splash Spring 2023 (Apr. 23, 2023)
This course will go into some dive into the concept of infinity. We will explore the different types of infinity and how we came up with these ideas. We will cover cardinality as well as countable and uncountable infinity. We will also show some of the applications of infinity such as its uses in calculus.
