Hello! I recently finished my PhD in Civil & Environmental Engineering at UC Berkeley. During my graduate school career, I developed expertise using both R and Matlab languages for various applications in the realm of data science, machine learning, and numerical modeling. I have several years of experience teaching and tutoring both R and Matlab programming languages, ranging from complete introductory level to advanced methods in data science, machine learning, and computational analysis ...

I spent 5 semesters as a Graduate Student Instructor at UC Berkeley teaching introductory level MATLAB programming. My tasks included developing programming assignments, creation of exam questions, and teaching discussion sections and review sections. I spent significant amounts of time working with students, guiding them through the processes of problem solving, code-writing, debugging, and solidifying concepts. Solving complicated problems in Matlab is something I greatly enjoy, and I hope to share that joy with you!
I spent ten years as a Civil Engineering student! II obtained my BS from the University of Pittsburgh, and my MS and PhD from UC Berkeley. The concepts of Civil Engineering have always fascinated me, which is why I stayed in school for so long. When I was at UC Berkeley I spent many semesters teaching CE classes, ranging from freshman level to graduate level, and I was even the recipient of the Outstanding Graduate Student Instructor Award. My main areas of expertise are in intro-level programming and computation, and upper level topics in hydrology, fluid mechanics, and water resources. Ask me about other subjects!
I have over 5 years experience in writing R code and have written several thousands of lines of R code. I have completed graduate level coursework at UC Berkeley focused on the R language and its application to solving statistical problems. I have direct experience with computational models, probabilistic models, statistical analysis, data management/manipulation, and data visualization, all in the R environment. I have tutored R in the past, and can help with anything ranging from the very fundamentals of programming to advanced methods and debugging.
