My name is Dustin Stansbury. I received my PhD from UC Berkeley, studying theoretical neuroscience and machine learning. During my graduate studies I learned a crap load about how brains and computers perform computations. Now, as a Data Scientist for the education technology company Quizlet, I employ a ton quantitative techniques on a day-to-day basis.
This blog is essentially an attempt to distill and share some of the knowledge I’ve gained through my experiences. The blog is composed of posts about analysis techniques, algorithms, theory, or things I just think are cool, exciting, or helpful.
I hope that you find the blog useful, and any comments, suggestions, or suggested topics are welcome and greatly appreciated.
**The first series of posts will actually be a port of previous MATLAB-based posts belonging to my original blog, The Clever Machine.
