Notes for Students and Data Scientists

If you’re a student, data scientist or software engineer with questions, please read this before contacting me.

I get hundreds of emails requesting ideas for graduate-level projects and code debugging. Unfortunately, given my recent focus on consulting and training, I don’t have the time to help everyone, although I would love to.

Here’s a guideline on what types of emails I generally make a conscious effort to respond to:

  • A well-written and well-explained request
  • Feedback on a specific AI idea
  • How to approach a machine learning / NLP problem
  • Specific career advancement questions

Things I don’t have time to help with:

  • Code debugging
  • Inspecting your dataset and data science work
  • Mentorship opportunities
  • Graduate project ideas
  • 1-1 meeting for project/career-related questions (although I may consider hosting office hours)

This is not to discourage you from contacting me, but more to set expectations. Now, you can head back over to the contact page :-).
