Hey, I'm Scott.

I'm a front-end engineer gone data scientist.

About

I'm Scott Lee, a Bay Area resident for the past decade, tech fanatic, and tea connoisseur. I'm currently doubling in Computer Science and Statistics at UC Berkeley. I started off as a front-end engineer in high school, but since then, I've branched out into data science because of my interest in statistics. In particular, I'm piqued by artificial intelligence, machine learning, and automation.

I'm also deeply interested in teaching and education; as such, I try to do a lot of my projects and work around them. One day, I hope to make accessible, high-quality education a practical reality through technology.

You can find my resume below, or if you prefer, here in PDF form.
