I'm Sam, a Data Scientist working at Amazon Web Services. I graduated from the University of Maryland in 2020, where I studied computer engineering, focusing on signal processing, control theory, and machine learning. Before joining AWS, I worked at Booz Allen Hamilton as a Data Science Consultant.

Outside of work, I like solving normal problems with code, gaming, and taking the occassional picture, like the cinemagraph above.

What I'm Up to Right Now

In the Fall of 2021, I left Booz Allen and joined Amazon Web Services as a Data Scientist working on an AI/ML team.

During the summer of 2020, I started working as a Data Scientist at Booz Allen Hamilton.

I spent the summer of 2019 working at Booz Allen Hamilton as an intern in their Summer Games Program. I worked in a small team to advance research on mapping cyber networks using machine learning and AI techniques. We built deep learning models for predicting network traffic and inferring connections on a network using tools like PyTorch, NVIDIA RAPIDS, and Microsoft Azure. This summer was a fantastic learning and networking experience and I'm grateful Booz Allen gave me the chance to see what their company is all about.

During school, I was a Product Developer for Coder Kids, a rapidly-growing computer science education organization based out of McLean, Virginia. I developed courses for all age groups in many different languages from Scratch to Python. My favorite courses that I made were creating chatbots in Python and building a battle royale in Unreal Engine 4.
