About

I am Oluwasegun, a statistician and an aspiring data scientist. I earned my bachelor’s degree in statistics from the Federal University of Technology, Akure, Nigeria and my master’s degree in mathematical sciences from the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS), Cameroon. I am a big fan of R and it’s my favourite for making sense of data. I have been doing data analysis in R for about 3 years now. I constantly use packages like ggplot2, forecast, ts, lme4 etc. I plan to learn how to create interactive data visualisations using the shiny framework in R and I regularly create dynamic reports using Rmarkdown. I find myself using python sometimes and I am conversant with popular libraries like numpy, scipy, pandas.

Recently, I developed interest in machine learning. I created this blog to serve as a journal/portfolio of my adventures in data science. Posts will be about topics ranging from stats and data analysis to machine learning, deep learning, neural networks and (maybe) even artificial intelligence.

I am currently a freelance data analyst on Fiverr and on Upwork and I basically help clients make sense of data from various fields in social science, finance, health, science, e-commerce etc. I’m also open to remote data science internships and you can contact me on my email if you would like to collaborate.

You can follow me on Twitter @mts4955 or like the Facebook page of this blog to stay tuned to updates from this blog and other interesting stuff in data science. I’ll be looking forward to hearing from you.
