Amir Poorfakhraei (PhD Civil Eng. Candidate)


Research Interests:

After 6 years of extensive research experience on data analysis, predictive analytics, machine learning, and handling big data, I am breaking into a data science career. World population will be 8 billion soon; to stabilize the world and meet the needs of all today while planning for the future, I think that Data Science aimed at better understanding behavioral data is critical. I have just started sharing my insights on Data Science, videos, and coding tricks you might like on Twitter, YouTube and GitHub.
