About Me

Hi! My name is Danny Vilela. I’m a junior at New York University who’s passionate about using data to solve a wide variety of problems.

In 250 characters or less: tell me about yourself.

I love using data to solve new, multidisciplinary problems and tell compelling stories. I’ve danced with data at Basecamp and currently Aloha. In my free time, I like reading, learning new programming languages, and petting other peoples’ dogs.

What tools do you use?

Python for general-purpose programming and machine learning (pandas, scikit-learn), R for more exploratory data analysis (dplyr, data.table) or visualization (ggplot2, shiny), and different flavors of SQL (My/Postgres) for database querying. I’m always expanding my toolset, and right now I have my eyes on Scala (Spark, etc.) and Julia for data science.

How can I contact you?

For a quick overview, I’ve got my resume and LinkedIn. Check out more of my code on my blog or GitHub. Feel free to reach out via email at danny.vilela@nyu.edu, but you can also send me your thoughts and prayers over on Twitter!
