"I'm a 3rd year undergrad. I started as a data science tutor last year and I'm excited to be returning for this class! I'm interested in the intersection between data science and the digital humanities & social sciences. I spent the past few months working at the local gov office for Santa Barbara County and I'll be an audit/assurance intern in the Bay Area next summer. Outside of class, I'm involved in UCSB's Associated Students and various student advocacy causes. Ask me if you're interested to learn more about any of the following: econ classes & econ major advice, student government at UCSB, or data science related research opportunities. Welcome to INT 5!"

I have a penchant for Machine Learning, Scientific Computing, and Web Development, and am currently a part time Data Science Intern at UCSB Health and Wellness. In regards to my personal life I like to eat my eggs with too much hot sauce, my favorite band is The Marías, and I enjoy painting and writing to de-stress and to get the creative juices flowing. I am very friendly and love to talk, so feel free to say Hi!"

Estella Z. (Tutor)

Pronouns: She/her/hers
Major: Chemical Engineering
Previous experience as a tutor: INT 5 (F18)
"Hello! My name is Estella (she/her/hers), and I’m a fourth-year chemical engineering major. I tutored students for INT 5 last fall, and I’m excited to be back again to help you get comfortable with coding and data science! Feel free to ask me anything about programming in Python and methods for debugging your code. Also, because of my unconventional major, if you have questions about research or pursuing data science and programming activities on the side, definitely come talk to me! Other than my school activities, I am working on a data automation and analysis project with a solid-state lighting company, and I love cooking, paddle boarding, swimming, and hiking."

Sergio (Tutor)

Pronouns: He/Him/His
Major: Statistics and Data Science
Previous experience as a tutor:
"Hello INT 5. My name is Sergio Zambrano and I am a fourth-year statistics and data science major. This is my first time tutoring for a class, so I am not sure how things will turn out. However, I will try my best to help you in whichever way I can. I understand that data science is a broad term that appears very intimidating. Not too long ago, I had the same uneasy feelings towards data science that some of you are facing. I hope that my knowledge and experience in data science will be able to help some of you overcome those uneasy feelings and jumpstart your journey as data scientists. I will mainly be a resource for the material in this course but feel free to talk to me during open lab hours about any concerns with planning courses, career goals, or anything else. Most of my experience is in python and in R with skills that range from pandas to machine learning and now Deep Learning. I have also been part of IEEE and robotics projects that mainly deals with hardware and software. I am currently intern at the YMCA corporate office where I use data science to aid me with business analytics. "
