My main interest in Mathematics, in conjunction with my studies in Behavioral Economics and Philosophy, helped me to hone down to choosing Data science as a career. I see data science as an excellent ‘experimental lab’ where I can use exact and abstract nature of mathematics in conjunction with data to discover new opportunities in particular Business operations and decision making process. This is exactly what I did with my capstone project in NYCDSA, where I worked with the raw data consisting of receipts collected by a POS system in one particular restaurant. I was able to give “voice” to the receipts collected in the past 6 moths, so that they can tell us the story of the restaurant operations, interests of customers and potential ways of optimizing the operations to better serve the guests and increase revenue of the restaurant at the same time.
