\section{Personal Statement}

I am a studious and persevering student studying \textbf{BSc Computer Science} at the \textit{University of Liverpool} with an eye on achieving an overall 1\textsuperscript{st} class honours. I have extensive knowledge with GNU / Linux systems as a Debian maintainer and prospective Debian developer. Possessing a mathematical mindset, I have a strong passion of Data Science, particularly Machine Learning and data-driven models. My goal is to get a placement in the field of Data Science starting in 2021.

%	SKILLS
%----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

\section{Skills}

\begin{itemize}
\item{\textbf{Expert understanding of *nix systems.}} \\
7 years of using Unix-like systems such as GNU/Linux. Additionally, worked with and compiled several softwares for packages on various architectures such as Arm, Amd64, Mips, et cetera.
\item{\textbf{Data scraping, wrangling, modeling and evaluation.}} \\
I further strengthened these skills by pursuing the Data Science professional certificate on edX as well as using internet resources to teach myself. I am particularly excited as Data Science \& Artificial Intelligence is my chosen module for this year's university.
\item{\textbf{Knowledge of R statistical language, Java, Python and C(++).}} \\
R language has been used when learning about statistics. I have also trialled with using Rcpp to write R modules.
\item{\textbf{Understanding of algorithmic methods of optimisation.}}
\item{\textbf{Attained some experience with Tensorflow but eagerly learning.}}
\item{\textbf{Interpersonal skills.}}
\item{\textbf{Strong experience with using Conda environment, more specifically Bioconda.}}
\item{\textbf{Comfortable with formulating and working with common statistical \\ methodologies such as p-values, linear regression, probability, Bayes' theorem and multivariate modelling.}}
\item{\textbf{A critical thinker.}}
\item{\textbf{Passion of learning and gaining a better grasp of a concept.}}
\item{\textbf{First experiences with forcasting and predictive models.}} \\
Practised using the datasets within the \href{https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/dslabs/index.html}{dslabs} package.
\item{\textbf{Great communicative skills.}} \\
Confidence and ability to converse within teams during teamworks, or to address a wider audience.
\item{\textbf{Ability to deliver qualitative and quantitative work under heavy workload, time constraints and pressure.}} \\
I am able to formulate a mental work-time structure in order to fairly and efficiently balance work to prevent any sort of bottlenecking.
\end{itemize}

\end{tabular}
\\\\\\
The Data Science certificate I am completing acts as a major supplement to my A.I. and analytics module I took last year. They both fairly overlap and this has helped fill any void in my knowledge. I am expected to complete this within the next couple of months.

%	INTERESTS
%----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

\section{Interests}

Desire and motivation of exploring and self-teaching new elements within the field of Data Science \& Machine Learning, as well as mathematical theorems in the realm of Artificial Intelligence.

Applying and testing my knowledge with real-life events. For instance, learning R and writing a web-scraping \& graphing page for \href{https://covid19.shayandoust.me/Liverpool/}{Covid-19 cases per ward in Liverpool}.

Programming in programming languages such as C \& C++ and pushing work onto my \href{https://git.shayandoust.me/}{SCM server}.
