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 Machine Learning and Data Mining. In the mean time, I'm working as a freelance data journalist writing about Data Science, Machine Learning, Deep Learning etc.

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 at small tech 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 Data Science, Computer Science, and Personal Development (featured on Writes), subscribe with your name and email address in the footer section below.
