Thanks for visiting! I currently work at AWS AI. I'm interested in applied statistics (experimentation & machine learning) and data visualization.

This page mostly for dataviz & JavaScript stuff I've made. Feel free to reach out:

software & interactive articles

  • roughViz.js

    Reusable JavaScript library for creating sketchy/hand-drawn styled charts in the browser, based on D3v5 & roughjs.

  • Decision Trees

    An explanation of the Decision Tree algorithm in machine learning: how the tree makes its splits, the concepts of Entropy and Information Gain, and why going too deep is problematic.

  • The Good, the Rad, and the Gnarly

    'An exploration into the music of skateboarding'. Visual essay I created for The Pudding.

  • Double Descent: A Visual Introduction

    An introduction to the double descent phenomenon in modern machine learning: what it is, how it relates to the bias-variance tradeoff, and a theory of what lies behind.

  • Double Descent: A Mathematical Explanation

    A mathematical explanation of the double descent phenomenon, building on the cubic spline example introduced in the prior article.

  • The Bias Variance Tradeoff

    Understand the tradeoff between under- and over-fitting models, how it relates to bias and variance, and explore interactive examples related to LOESS and KNN.

  • The Permutation Test

    A 'scrolly-telling' visual tutorial of statistical testing with hand-drawn SVG aesthetics.
