Featured Projects

Gender Recognition by Voice

Kaggle Python, XGBoost, Pandas

Built a machine learning model to classify the gender of a voice based on sound data. Achieved 98.23% on a 5-fold cross validation metric using a gradient boosting decision tree, implemented with sklearn.

Dog vs Cat

Kaggle Python, TensorFlow, Pandas

Processed files from a Kaggle dataset containing images of dogs and cats, and built a convolution Nueral Net to achieve 80% classification accuracy.
