About Akio
Analytical, Creative
(and the candidate you're looking for, I hope)

I'm a MIDAS certified data scientist in training. I earned a B.S. in Biopsychology, Cognition, and Neuroscience from University of Michigan. Upon getting my degree, I worked in a cultural neuropsychology lab analyzing brianwaves (i.e. EEG) in Matlab where I really cemented my love for analysis. At my internship at Michigan Medicine, I helped create a web app in ASP.NET MVC model in C# for doctors and researchers to use, as well as create some neat heat maps using Python. I'm currently a Master's student at the University of Michigan School of Information, specializing in Big Data Analytics. I eat, breathe, and sleep data analysis and love nothing more than crunching numbers.

I thrive in an environment that keeps my mind engaged and active. I work hard and play hard-- I work best in a fast paced environment where I'm constantly busy. Nothing makes me happier than making things from scratch, and learning new skills.

I also play violin, compose a bit, and ring one of the largest bells in North America.
