Codementor | Jan 2021 - Jan 2022

Data Science / Analytics - Pandas - Python - Visualization

• Live and Long Term Mentoring / Freelance Projects / Code Review

Intel Corporation | Apr 2021 - Jun 2021

Data Analyst

• Web scraping and API use to collect cloud service cluster pricing data, and cross reference to Intel ICs. • Store tables in PostgreSQL using pandas with sqlalchemy. • Contract through Aditi

Intel Corporation | Feb 2019 - Jul 2019

Data Analyst

• Parse text information from multiple XML files into a single JSON file. Flatten JSON file with pandas and join it with associated data from a database. • Deploy a Flask application on Linux to serve the aggregated data and write python methods to make it searchable by various parameters. • NLP (TF-IDF) was used to match the unstructured text contents of various fields. • Code was tested in Jupyter Notebooks then converted to standard python files. • Unstructured Text Data Cleaning. • Contract through UST Global

Intel Corporation | Apr 2017 - Oct 2018

Validation Engineer

• Ethernet Networking Division (ND) • Ethernet adapter validation - NPO Lab • Produce test plans for the thorough validation of Ethernet network cards. • Test network cards with a combination of custom automation and bench testing. • Implement automation to the data analysis process with Python and Excel. • Summarize test results with an electrical validation report. • Wrote and implemented new waveform post-processing automation with python, Jupyter Lab and Pandas to: ► Organize data generated by testing to ascertain the completeness of test coverage as defined by the test plan. ► Produce waveforms and waveform analysis from the raw waveform test points. ► One test of 3 DUTs produces 1.7B+ rows of data which is used to generate 1500+ waveform figures. ► Figures are either individual waveforms or groups of waveforms ► Individual waveform measurement figures are divided into four subplots, and out of spec data are masked.: (1) full waveform (3) ringing (4) steady state. ► Combined figures to include: (1) startup of all test points plotted to verify sequencing (2) test points and slew rate (3) DUT and test point to name a few combinations. • Automation of Excel with Python • Contract through Kelly Services

Microsoft | Aug 2014 - Nov 2014
