Josh Everts

School of Information

I'm a Master's student at the Berkeley School of Information in the MIMS program, studying Data Science. I am especially interested in applying the statistical and computational methods of Data Science to problems within the natural sciences and transportation. To this end I am currently helping with the data analysis of a spectroscopy experiment at SLAC National Lab. Outside of academic work I enjoy improving my cooking skills, biking, and learning about history and geography.
