In Spring 2020, I participated in a semester-long Data Science course offered by Forge (formerly HackCville). Throughout this course, I developed data science skills such as data cleaning, machine learning and web scraping in Python.

The second project for this course was a machine learning project focused on predicting the quality of wine using a variety of variables including citric acid, density, pH and alcohol to name a few. To see who could generate the most successful model, we created a Kaggle competition that scored each competitor’s model using the F1 score. …

For my final project in the Data Science course, I wanted to build upon the machine learning skills I learned throughout the semester. As an avid runner, I was interested in topics related to health and fitness. While browsing through Kaggle, I stumbled upon a dataset with information about the Boston Marathon. I chose the most recent dataset from 2017 and decided to predict gender…
