My life motto: "Constraints Drive Creativity"


I am an upcoming Master Student in Computer Science at Rochester Institute of Technology (go Tigers!). My intended research will focus on Computer Vision and Recommendation Systems. In the mean time, I am freelancing both as a data scientist and a data journalist, specializing in Machine Learning (Deep Learning), Data Analysis, and Data Visualization.

I graduated with a Bachelor Degree in Communication and a minor in Computer Science from Denison University in 2017, during which I did summer internships in Business Analytics and Product Management at VC-backed startups in Seattle and San Francisco.

I finished boarding school in Rabun Gap, Georgia in 2013, prior to which I spent 16 years being born and raised in Hanoi, Vietnam.

I maintain a list of the books I read on Reads and keep track of a list of podcasts I listen to regularly on Listens. I also occasionally write on Medium, regularly commit on GitHub, daily tweet at @james_aka_yale, and always look to connect on LinkedIn.

Last but not least, if you are interested in receiving my bi-weekly articles on topics such as Artificial Intelligence, Computer Science, and Personal Development (featured on Writes), subscribe with your name and email address in the footer section below.
