I’m in Cambridge doing these things (in order of time spent):

  • Economics degree: I’m in my second year at Cambridge. My focus is on making the most of my time studying Economics to create tools and resources that will help people learn Economics more effectively at the secondary and undergraduate level. To this end, I am:
    • Building an open source tool to plot Economics graphs digitally. Target audience: Economics students and teachers.
    • Building a map of Economic models and theories relevant to the papers I am taking this year (basic game theory, uncertainty, monetary economics, international macro, econometrics).
  • Data Analysis and Machine Learning
    • Working on Udacity’s Self-Driving Car Engineer Nanodegree, where we’re learning sensor fusion, localisation and control this semester.
      • Am also mentoring students on the programme.
    • Blogging about learning machine learning.
    • Kaggling (just started 12 April)
    • Contributing to Data4Democracy projects
      • to improve election transparency and
      • to create a tool relating information on internal migration of refugees (based on data scraped from news articles)
  • Music: Arranging for acapella and composing short film scores. Playing contemporary piano background music.
  • Reading the Bible and other books
    • When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi
    • The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
  • Pet Projects: Improving HelloMotions.com, an online debating topics database.
