R Shiny App Project - Used Car Sales
Using what factors have the greatest impact on the sale price of used cars. With used car sales data from eBay looked primarily at the impact of the year of the car and mileage as well as car-specific factors such as the drive type. Also built out an interactive shiny app so users can analyze on their own.
Python Web Scraping Project - MLB MVP Voting
Using Python and Scrapy scraped MVP voting data from baseball-reference.com and did an analysis on which factors had the greatest impact on voting. Focused on older traditional stats (average/home runs/rbi) vs modern advanced stats(war). Looked into how the importance of certain stats has changed over time.
