Data Analysis Training on Udacity: e.g.  Looking at Health Data


Started the Udacity Data Anslyst nanodegree program today. It’s time to move forward and use my Ph.D. In industry. I’ve struggle for several years trying to figure out what to do with my chemistry degrees. I am thinking about moving into market analysis for a company and doing data analysis for environmental interests on the side. My ministry training brought me to Pine Ridge and I saw needs in saving the planet with data and education. However, it’s been hard to get on my feet with a defined path. I hope this program helps provide some focus and direction. Thankful to my friends for a place of newfound stability after about six years of being swept too and fro by life. Thankful for this chance to start slow in something that builds on my interests. Hoping to work at home on this morning and night while working at Bill’s Imported Foods.

About kayaerbil

I am a Berkeley educated chemistry Ph.D. who is moving into the area of working on developing appropriate technology for communities that are subjected to socio-economic oppression. The goal is to use simple and effective designs to empower people to live better lives. Currently, I am working with Native Americans on Pine Ridge, the Lakota reservation in South Dakota. I am working with a Native owned and run solar energy company. We are currently working on building a compressed earth block (CEB) house that showcases many of the technologies that the company has developed. The CEB house is made of locally derived resources, earth from the reservation. The blocks are naturally thermally insulating, keeping the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Eventually, a solar air heater and photovoltaic panels will be installed into the house to power the home and keep it warm, while preserving the house off the grid. A side project while in Pine Ridge is a solar computer. I hope to learn about blockchain encryption software for building microgrids. In addition, it is an immediate interest of mine to involve local youth in technology education.
