👋 Hi, I'm Melanie

I'm a data scientist at BuzzFeed. I'm currently doing an engineering residency with our data engineering team to learn more about ML ops/engineering. I've also worked closely with our apps team.

🏛 History

👩‍💻 Experience

I've worked in data science for two years. Before moving to New York I worked at a travel AI startup in Austin, where I was one of two NLP engineers. I had a brief stint consulting at as well (+ some previous internships in recruiting).

👩‍🎓 Education

I got my MS in computer science from NYU. In undergrad I studied NLP at the University of Potsdam (near Berlin).

📚 Resume

Perpetually outdated but hanging in there, here it is (last update: May 2020).

⁉️ FAQ

  • Q: Can you help me become a data scientist? A: Maybe! I'm happy to answer specific questions, but it's very, very difficult to give generic career advice in this field. I picked up a new book called Build a Career in Data Science earlier this year and it's an incredible resource, so I'd recommend you start there.
  • Q: Book recs? A: All time favorites: The Book Thief and When Breath Becomes Air. Currently reading: A New Earth.
  • Q: What is that accent? A: It's German. One day I'm going to hire a voice coach to help me iron out my R's.
