Math is exciting, fun, challenging, cooler than physics

About Me

I graduated with highest honors from UC Davis in 2017 with two bachelor degrees - Computer Science and Computational Mathematics. Throughout my undergraduate career, I have developed a strong foundation in machine learning, optimization, numerical analysis, and algorithm development. Moreover, In 2016 I began working as the Senior Systems Tech for Forage Genetics Int, the world leader on genetically engineered alfalfa. There I introduced systems for both streamlining their data analytics with Tableau and lab processes with a custom-made LIMS. I have also developed a predictive model for auto tetraploid dosage calling using a mixed semi/full supervised machine learning model. Over the next year my plans include executing the development of a new data science division at Forage Genetics, while continuing my education at UC Davis with a plan to get my Master's degree in May 2018. If you are interested in data science, contact me at dsherman@landolakes.com to inquire about any available internships.
