To whom this may concern, \\

\setlength\parindent{24pt} My name is Shayan Doust, and I am a 20 year old student studying BSc Computer Science with a year in industry at the University of Liverpool. I am expecting a $1^{st}$ class honours degree. I have just commenced my second academic year. As I have enrolled for a year in industry, I am currently in the process of finding an industrial placement job for a 12-month period at a company. This means that instead of the typical three years of getting a degree, mine is stretched over a four year period. Therefore, this means that in my third academic year, I will be working a paid job with the placement roughly starting during the summer of 2021. \\

I am very passionate in the field of Data Science, particularly machine learning and artificial intelligence. As can be depicted from my curriculum vitae, I describe myself as very studious, motivated and a hard-worker with my aim being to work as a data scientist, preferably in a medical-oriented company. I have a plethora of knowledge and experience using and maintaining a GNU/Linux system as well as a good knowledge of fundamental \& advanced statistics, with a bold enthiusiasm of exploring the realm of machine learning and artificial intelligence. I do have skills with regards to ensemble methods and reinforced learning which help increase predictive power and performance, however I am currently in the process of self-learning neural networks and deep learning. \\

If there is any opportunity of working in a company for a 12-month period starting in 2021, this is much appreciated. I possess the knowledge and skill to a degree, however I would like production-level experience. One of my projects is data scraping, cleaning and visualising Covid-19 cases per ward in Liverpool. My future ambition is to complete my BSc, attain my masters and preferably achieve my PhD research alongside a company. If there is anything else that you would like to know, please feel free to reach out to me by my details situated in the top right of this document.
Kind regards,
Shayan Doust
