I've dabbled in a bunch of smaller projects and experiments, currently in various stages of disrepair:
- A data viz showing the loss of perfect brackets in the 2016 ESPN March Madness challenge, compared to chance. It did pretty well on /r/DataIsBeautiful. It ended up getting linked in a FiveThirtyEight article, so that was pretty nifty.
- A roundabout scraper for facebook group data at sociograph.io
- A foray into evolutionary algorithms inspired by this FiveThirtyEight riddler
- A searchable victim bio page for the 15th Anniversary of 9/11, built for lohud.com as part of freshman internship.
